This is a really cool line of slopers and crimps on a huge boulder. Start matched on the lowest big sloper (might help to stack some pads), and go up and right to top it out. There is also a line that branches to the left, but I think it's harder.
Go around the left hand side of the Double Clutch Boulder, and scramble uphill a bit between some boulders. Pretty soon it will clear and you can look to the right to see this problem, which is just left of an offwidth dihedral crack. The obvious dihedral problem, the Vice, is a bit more to the right.
Two pads is really all you need, but it helps to have a few more just to get on the thing.

The line to the left is, in fact, quite a bit easier. I'm referring to the V2 which is immediately left of the obvious, slopey start. Throw up and left to a huge jug, top out. It's really quite reasonable. And The Vice ...V10.

I appreciate the beta, however what he was referring to was the harder left branching finish to Ode to Failure.
