Stand start on jug at above head height. Put on feet high on nubbins, deadpoint/dyno to next jugs up, Put feet on jug, dyno/deadpoint to next jug. top out straight up.
This problem will scare you with its height and the level of commitment required at first but it becomes easier witht he more pads you have!
Backside on Ride the Lightning boulder.
Climb up boulder before doing climb to brush off topout !!IMPORTANT!!
Topout in lichen covered and pine-needle covered.
Have multiple pads and multiple spotters or don't fall!

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.
