Tim starting up this awesome problem.

Description 

Start on the base of the finger crack that faces the road on a big jug. Climb the crack in full view of passersby, careful to not let your head get the better of you on this highball classic.

Location 

Faces road on big boulder that is described in Area Description. Obvious chalked line.
Important: When climbing on the road side, be very aware of cars and be ready to quickly get out of their way. Don't make drivers nervous and force them to drive around you! This is serious enough that the town has considered blowing up the boulder!

Protection 

Pad and spotter

A good introductory highball- tall, but not unreasonably so, with a perfectly flat landing. If you are strong enough to make it to the sloper jug and/or layback crack below the top, you'll be fine on the moves after that. Grab some pads and give it a go!

The landing may be flat, but it is exceptionally hard.

Would not want to fall off the last move of this thing, that would be rough.

When I was a bit younger I fell off with both arms over the top... couldn't find the good hold and just slid off... My spotters were of little use from that height... they basically spanked me on the way down as I crash landed on to my single pad... yeah, I recommend not falling from up there haha
