If you have a copy of "Colorado Bouldering" this problem is on the Electric Kite Wall. Locate this by heading North from any of these (Trough Arete, Gap Block, Warmup Traverse, etc.). If you are at "What's This?" then Electric Kite will be 20m NW through some scrub oak. It is a large, white, smooth boulder that is slightly overhanging with several large pockets on the face.

"Mig 28" starts at the right end under the roof/arete. SDS with a left hand in a huge pocket still on the main face, then go head to head with the enemy in an "inverted" position for the rest of the route. Employ the heel hook with force, slap those slopers, and decipher the traverse out to a ledge before you pump out. The problem essentially ends here since you can take a nap on the ledge, but a continuation or alternate finish takes the N side of the arete on crimpers (and lichen) to the top. Really fun, pumpy line.


Shoes for heel hooking.
