Brian Sohn on Thin Air.
Great technical face climbing, good flexability in the legs can make this problem easier.
Movement is pretty continuous, but the most committing move is the pop for the top off of a left hand sidepull/undercling and a very sharp right handed crimp that can be difficult to see, reach right up to an edge a little below the lip and go again to the top.
Just right of Big Air is a low flared seam then a higher finger crack. SDS in the flare and climb the beautiful slightly overhanging face. V6 from the stand start with the leftt hand in the finger crack used with the right hand on Big Air.
About to catch the side pull before the long move ...

This is listed as a project in CO Bouldering 2, even though it had been climbed several years before.

I made the second ascent shortly after Lee showed me how to do it. The Hayman fire did not affect this boulder.
