Careful of those holds, particularly at the top...they're creakers. Other than that, this problem is highly unique and exciting! There are about four big holds on this thing other than the lip. They're all about four feet apart, too. Awesome...

Look for a hidden left-hand gaston at the top. It makes things a little less spicy.
