This is an entertaining boulder problem 20 yards from the Real Hidden Valley Parking lot. Park and walk west, as per Loose Lady. After 5-6 seconds of hiking, look over your right shoulder. You'll see a big scoop with a chalky handhold on the left. Grab the hold, smear your feet and dyno to the lip. Then make an easy mantel to finish the job.
A rating on this one is pretty meaningless...

Wouldn't stick with one hand, so why not try two?

I agree with AJ. You can basically scrap the V rating on this problem. If you are 5'0" it will be a long flight to the top. And a person 6'0" and over it is really not a dyno. But either way it is fun, so have at it.

I'm 5'8. took me 4 tries before i could grab the jug and not swing off from the momentum. btw i used the rail in the scoop for my feet and it worked pretty well. tons o fun for a one move wonder.

A truly classic boulder problem. You look at the face and it seems that the holds were placed perfectly for an amazing boulder problem. So good that you have to do it again and again.

Bring a pad unless you plan on manteling off the sucka. It's a long drop. Good landing, but a long drop none the less...made all the more painful in super tight climbing shoes. Personal experience... Sent on the second go!

The name was picked by Yabo, who called it Saturday Night Live, because he did it 9 times in a row on a Saturday night for the FA. Yep, at night, FA, and I bet he did the whole problem too... not dropping off without the doing the mantel... the shame! 99.469% sure no flashlight either.
