She had nothing to do with it

Sit-start under the steep arete just left of Sudden Fear. Make a few powerful moves to get established on a crimp just right of the arÍte, set up, and throw for a dish around the corner. If I ever stick that move I'll add more details about the summit.
Left side of the Sudden Fear boulder; follow the trail down and left from the Meilee boulder, this problem is on the far end of the obvious boulder right of the trail.

The really big left facing jug in the middle of the climb is flexing a lot. I drew an "X" on it, but yeah didn't feel comfortable using it anymore.

Bob: on that recent SB bouldering video I saw you say something about She Had Nothing To Do With It going up the left of the arete? Just curious how to go about it as the only way I've ever been able to climb it was similar to how it was done in the video (low start, move to the leftmost jugs on face, then throw for the slanted pocket out left to top out).
ps Thanks for the sweet old school pics!

It's been forever since I've been on this thing but if I remember correctly you sit-start where it's obvious, reach up to a high right, get a foot up, left hand on the arete and bump it out onto the other face and then move around the corner. Basically, the original problem (Rick's way) went around the arete almost right off the bat. Small edges and feet, not a fun fall with that tombstone behind you.
That straight up way looks cool too, it's just not how we did it.
ps your welcome
