Sit start on the left side of the large horizontal on the eastern overhanging face. From the horizontal fire up to the bar then up left and then out right to the crimper and fire to the lip. Classy moves for a classic problem. A+ on movement!

would have given it more stars but the (dab block) in front of the climb was annoying

With the right beta I never even come close to touching it... but it could be reshaped to be less in the way. That and the one in front of Atomic Pleasure too.

The one on Atomic didnt bother me nearly as much. I am sure you could start this further to the right...I was just going by the chalked starting holds

Sent this today and was really stoked. for sure the hardest boudler I've climbed yet. the block at the base is only annoying for the first move. i just started on holds like a foot to the right.

Hey Morgan, sorry about that. Youtube was buggin' out. Here's the proper link:

Based on the pictures you uploaded, it looks like I escaped and topped out a little too far to the left which shaves off a move or two... However, I would definitely say those two moves are pretty banger and are followed by a tricky mantel. It felt pretty tough. What do you think??

In the world of bouldering, I would say that's a different line but shares a hold with Kerosine. Kerosine starts just to your right, goes up right first, then big move w/ left (to the hold you grab with your right), then to a crimp out right and up right to the dish and mantel. I would consider it a variation or a new line and you should add it to MP. Thanks for sharing bud!

I agree with it being a variation, I climbed 2-3 moves to the right, glad to see someone climbing at the basin!
