Description 

Looking at the start of this problem will make it scream for you to give it a try, and the lack of apparent holds on the upper half make it that much more interesting. Starting with good sidepulls for your hands and obvious feet, move up to the sloping ledge, and continue to the top using small crimps and shallow dishes. Great movement on solid rock make this one of the best problems around.


Location 

Near the top of the Lower Ridge, you can get there by going pretty much straight downhill from the Dirt Bag and Happy Hunting Grounds.
