Description 

Larsen's problem is sometimes confused with the considerably harder Gill Pinch Roof. It climbs the roof just to the right of the climber in the picture, right where the spotter's hands seem to be.

Start on the slab under the roof to the right of the crack where the Gill Pinch begins. Reach up and grab the flake right by the climber's right foot in the picture, and then climb straight up from there, ending up at the same handhold the climber is reaching for in the picture.

Location 

Just around the corner past the face with the Keyhole crack problems.

Protection 

A pad, maybe a spotter too. Be careful as you traverse off right.
