Description 

This problem is described in the AC comment to the main page, but it's confusing now that there are more than two photos.

Walk uphill from Mongoose, find the slightly overhanging east face with a bad landing. The lower you start the harder. Side-pull and crimp until you can throw for the nice sloping ledge right below the top of the boulder.

Also, a V1 takes the line to the right of the bad landing, and the south face has some fun V2 ish moves on a steeper overhang.


Location 

The boulder just uphill and west of Mongoose, main problem.


Protection 

Pad or two, spotter. Watch out for the rocky landing.
