The crux.


Sit start with a jug and move up into some good holds. Get a high foot in the starting hold and get yourself over the lip by way of a couple different variations.


This is not actually in the alcove but right behind it. If you are looking at the Alcove Slab problem, walk to the exact other side of the boulder.

There are really two variations to this problem. If you go up left heel/left hand sidepull, it is a pretty easy problem (V3 ??). If you go up right heel and stick a right hand thumb catch, it is V4-5ish, which is why I gave it a 4+.
