Description 

Begin on large holds down and right (same holds for Cos...). Bust left to good scoops and complete the middle sequence one of a number of ways... As long as it is going up, I think it counts. Gain a good right facing "ear" and either cross or bear down on the "slimper" to bust right to jugs and either a drop off finish or up flakes to the top of the boulder.

Location 

West face of the boulder.

Protection 

Mash mats...

Funny/humbling story:

After watching a climber do the moves, I put my shoes on, chalked up, and easily flashed this problem. Feeling pretty good about myself, I decided to explore some famous "moderates" around the Milks'. I landed on Birthday Direct, a classic V3.

In short: I had a mini-epic, and barely sent after like 40 tries.

I love rock-climbing.

Pretty chill for v8, but the topout is sharp and scary

The top out is amazing!! and a must do for the problems on this wall. 1 star with drop off, 3-4 with proper top out.
