Start low down on the right, possibly sitting, in the same spot as All Dogs Go to Evans. Climb left along and out the overhang, trending along the steep arete as per ADGTE for about 10-12 feet. At this point, instead of continuing left with ADGTE, perform a burly mantel up onto the face (crux), which will require some effort and proud manteling skills. Once established on the face, dance up the 80 degree slab on thin imperfections for 15+ feet to the top.
I've given this two stars but its honestly a little better than that. You get to do the first ~8 moves or so with ADGTE (great), one of the burliest mantels at Evans onto a slab (powerful puzzle-solving) and a slightly sketchy slabtacular run to the finish.
This problem is on the same boulder as Seurat. Begin low on the east side of the boulder in the same spot as ADGTE, where the trail first meets the boulder.
A few Organic pads and a spotter or two to protect the climber in the event a fall happens towards the top, which could bring the 6' tall talus boulder behind the climber into play with nasty consequences.
