Start as for Contorted, on the block below the boulder. Make a cool press into the roof with your left hand, then reach way out right to a good incut or to the jug at the lip. Bring your left hand to a pinch at the lip, then heelhook the lip. From here, traverse the lip of the boulder on good slopers and ledges, all the way to the sweet spot for topping out.


Starts underneath roof on the block helping to balance the boulder, moves to the lip, then traverses right.
