The classic line at the grade in Boulder Natural. Stand start on a huge jug, set your feet and fire up and left to the cool triangular pinch. Grab a right crimp and bump to the jug on the lip up and right. Topout next to the tree. Landing is a bit painful so don't botch the dyno/deadpoint/topout.
Alternate beta - From the jug, go left hand to the triangular pinch, heel hook the jug with your right foot, grab a crimp with your right hand, then bump to the lip out right. There is a crack/jug back from the lip out left to help with the topout.
The toe-hook beta is awesome. Start on the jug, then gaston the left-hand side-pull. With your right foot, toe hook the jug's right side. As you lean left, both the toe hook and the gaston get much better, so don't give up until it sticks! From there, easily stand up on your left foot to the triangle pinch and top out. Smooth.
Incredibly fun for such a short climb! Start with both hands at the sidepull, then hit the gaston, match, and layback into it. Pop to the sloping top with your left hand, toe hook the start hold, and make a big move to the triangular crimp with your right hand. The topout is super cool. Descend by shimmying down the crevice between the boulders.
MAN. I've been thinking I've climbed E-Z cheese for YEARS now, only to discover that All I've ever done are variations on Swiss Cheese (many of them). Never knew that E-Z Cheese is a true eliminate (huuuuge logical left gaston is off).

When going straight up, there's no logical reason to touch the gaston. :)
