Description 

Three desperate moves followed by a classic romp up technical jugs to a high topout. Stand start in the middle of the face with a crescent shaped crimp sidepull and poor feet and establish yourself on the wall with difficulty. Shoot out right to a slopey knob feature before making a hard match. Make another big move out right to a great jug, work your feet, and use a high left crimp to aid in sticking the lip. There is a hidden two-finger pocket at the lip if you need it. Try not to forget your footing and topout.

Location 

Left of Magnificent and right of Hairway on the tall boulder next to the log about a minute from the main trail. This face isn't visible from the trail. Downclimb down the gully on the right or circle around to the left by Hippie.

Climbed this today in terrible conditions. Not a bad little climb. Definitely one of the more interesting lines in the Ridgeline area. A somewhat awkward start, but fairly easy when you figure out the right body positioning.

The handholds are good quality rock but the footholds are a bit fragile and that takes away from the quality of the climb a bit for me. Kind of hard to grade, for me, but v8ish sounds about right.
