Moving up to the rail on Rug Rat

Description 

This problem tests power and technique with a dash of highball for flavor. SDS in underclings and make a desperate first move to a jug out right. Work your left hand up the right-trending rail until you are in position to throw to the left trending arete with your right hand. Establish on the arete with your right hand and make a tenuous move to stand-up on the right trending rail you used for your left hand. Continue straight up for the easy but highball top out. Classic!

Location 

On the backside of the UMWA boulder in a large scoop left of the tree.

Protection 

Couple o' pads and some spotters to keep you out of the tree if you pitch.

from the jug out right, I was able to get in a knee bar to get my left hand out to the rail.
Love the compression, classic problem!
