Description 

One of the most aesthetic problems anywhere, this also is in contention for the best easy problem at Joe's Valley. For most of the year the top of this problem is over the water, but the hardest moves are at the very beginning and can easily be protected by a crashpad.


Location 

The obvious rail up the face of the big riverside boulder.

This one has a tricky start. Once you get onto better hands throw the right foot along the rail since you will not reach a left foot until you are staring at the pockets. This is a must do classic Joe's boulder problem. More a mind game than anything, but the difficulty depends on where you decide to topout. Toping out early is roughly V1, whereas staying on the rail until you're nearly out of rail increases the difficulty to V2.

Crux is definitely the start. Lots of methods for the rest, but none affect the difficulty.

Do it in the summer over semi-deep water for full value
