Start on the right side under the overhang and climb the right side arete using sidepulls on the left dead point to a small jug and grab sidepull under the overhang on your left and top out. A harder sit start may also exist. The rating is open to discussion.


It si located on the Black Pearl Boulder on the right side of a large boulder with vertical crack and two bolt anchor on top. The large crack is visible on the right side of the fire road.
