Description 

According to the guidebook- "Stand start with your left hand in a hidden undercling and right on a crimper. Throw to the hanging flake..." Both of these holds are more like crimp sidepulls and fairly obvious. It all seems simple enough- grab the starting holds, pull off the ground and either throw for the flake or use a hard to hit intermediate (gaston or sidepull, depending on your beta) with your right hand. Once you've secured the flake, heroically lay it back to the top. However, the starting holds aren't very good (maybe even broken?) and it all seems quite hard for the grade.


Location 

When facing 'Nemesis', this boulder is the next boulder to the right, on the gently overhanging side that faces away from the parking lot. It starts directly below the hanging flake.


Protection 

A couple crash pads would be nice. The landing is often wet.

Bill Patton and I tried this a bit the other day and we both agree that it feels quite hard (especially for v5). Any info on this? Perhaps one or both of the starting holds broke slightly? I could see how either one of them being slightly better would make this considerably easier...
