Raging Bull has amazing movement, and, like everything else in Leavenworth, great rock. Start sitting with a good low left crimp, and a good right hand (I can't remember what kind of hold. If someone wants to comment on it, that'd be helpful). At my height, I had half a thigh on the boulder beneath to start.
Paste your foot, and gun for the rad slopers. Stay tight, use your heels and toes, and move through a few more slopers, which will feel huge if you can keep your feet from cutting.
The only black eye on this one is the dab potential on the first move (careful with your right foot!), and I could see how the line could turn off some people because the hardest bit is getting off the ground.
Persevere! And send me a message if you can't find the secret micro foot. Top out on the big sloping ledge above, and jump/climb down onto your pad.
A really great little problem, with a perfect name.
There's kind of a softly jutting-out corner on the Footless Traverse. Right of it is Big Booty Bitch Slap, v10. Left and low under the roof, you'll find Raging Bull. Look for the well-chalked low starting holds, and the v-slot you're shooting for on the first move.
If you have an ego that requires stroking, you could climb to the top of the boulder. This is not enthusiastically recommended. I'm not the Leavenworth Bouldering Police, but I'd say once you've topped out on the big ledge at eight feet, you've done the problem. You are now a Raging Bull.
