This problem is a super classic, and perhaps the best problem of its grade in Joshua Tree. Essentially Caveman's big, secluded brother. Climb the sustained roof on jams, edges and heel hooks with a dynamic finish on sloper slapping. Some trickery allows you to completely recover before launching into the final sequence. The plastic-trained climber who loves gymnastic moves on relatively large holds will adore this one.
At the far right side of Alister's Cave is a chalked jug and overhead handjam slot. Sit start and work through the roof ending at obvious jugs in a break just above the dismal finishing slopers.
A single pad will suffice, but have a spotter who can drag it as you climb. If you're solo and at your limit two pads would be nice.
