A good problem that is perhaps not as classic as ARP. (And maybe not that much harder??) Sit start and burl up underclinging the crack until you can get a left hand side pull higher in the crack. Work your right hand up the right arete and left up the crack with some fancy footwork until you can pull onto the slab right of the arete. Delicately lieback the arete up the slab to the top.


Left of the tree that is left of the voodoo child. The crack is obvious.

A really fun problem.

Kind of contrived to start with both hands in the undercling when you can easily reach other holds from the ground. Ultimately it doesn't add that much overall difficulty, just makes the problem slightly more sustained. The crux (for me) was still hitting the higher left hand sidepull and then turning the corner onto the slab.
