An amazing line that requires careful technique from start to finish. Climb up the 20+' tall slab on small edges. The beginning is cruxy, then you get a reprieve on some bigger edges before committing to the topout.
The first commercial crashpad, the Kinnaloa Sketchpad, was developed for this problem.
From the parking, contour around the hill to the north to the giant bloc. This problem is on the north face.
Several pads, spotter recommended

Fantastic problem! I enjoyed every move and wanted it to just keep going. I agree with Adam, I feel that it is one of the best problems of its grade around. If you like this problem check out the John Bachar Memorial Problem in the Pollen Grains.
