This thing is a monster of a problem. Climb the very slopey arete using some of that LCC slab tech. The crux comes right after getting over "the drip" when trying to get a high foot. The rock is perfect, probably best climbing in the cooler months of fall/winter.
VERY FUN PROBLEM
Located at the south-western corner of the boulder next to all the slab problems. Start matched on the huge "drip" about 5 feet up and climb the arete.
Downclimb the tree with all the bark stripped off.
a few pads, a fall from the top will easily make you bottom out if you only have one pad under you. Attentive spotter too, although the falls are pretty straight forward.
finding some great friction early spring
