Description 

This may in fact be quite harder than V5. On the Big Fred Boulder this problem is opposite the walkway from Hula and very visible as a low start cave moving climbers rightward into a highball arete. The holds are very small and the movement is very difficult.

Location 

Opposite Hula on the Big Fred Boulder. Slopedon Milosovich is around to the climbers right of Francois and from there the Family Affair 5.4 slab rounds out the backside of Big Fred Boulder.

Protection 

Bolts were added to this problem to the dismay of the problems first ascentist. Because the problems primary difficulty is presented early in the problem and the highball finish is a bit of a formality to those who climb that hard it is very likely that this bolt will be chopped. While bolts in certain situations at the Garden remain acceptable, ones added for the V2/3 Finish of a very hard problem is not logical.
