Climb a short offwidth to a chimney/tunnel. Tunnel through this to the back side of the rock. You will be wiggling like a worm through this section, just don't get stuck!

I just tried the offwidth for the first time today after climbing Santee for a few years. Probably not often done, this climb was such a blast I did it twice in a row.
I may have cheated using a long reach to start this climb, but the finish is what made it stand out to me. You start up the offwidth and finish through a cave of sorts where I got stuck both times. What an adventure for a boulder problem!

You escaped through the cave after the offwidth? Lol, that's the retreat if you decide not to take on the committing topout above! Next time you'll have to finish it. Not that you'll have any problem but thought I'd add: we caught a gal on two pads that bailed while reaching for the finishing jug above the face! Thank God she didn't whack her head on the ledge on the way down! She was okay though.
