|The Moat Boulder
On the road-side of the Moat Boulder lies a steep, well-featured face. Firestarter climbs up the right side of this wall. Start sitting with good holds and make a big move up left to a flake and another big move to the lip.
This problem is one of those that just flows well...the kind that you find yourself doing everytime you are in the area.

There are also intermediate holds to avoid the huge move. GASTON!!!

Even better: Start with your hands crossed, bump through (still a cross) to the first crimp then get a solid foot and big static reach past the sloping crimp rail to the second one. The move requires a pretty stiff lockoff (right arm) on a less than pleasant crimp, but this beta makes it a MUCH more enjoyable sequence.

worth it to climb this every time you walk by- moves are great and top outs low enough you don't need a pad just a good spot
