Instead of climbing the standard route up the west face climb the face to the left using a smeared palm and decent side pull with th eright hand. A tenuous move out left to a camo'd crimp leads to good pulls to the top and a straight mantle finish. One of my favorites at the reserve.

FA: Paul Jones - this was one of the first problems I sent soon after finding this area. Good problem to test your shoes edging ability, and your mantle skills. My favorite V3 in the park
