Description 

Start low on the obvious underclings at the start of Handi-Capps. Move left on very strenuous moves to the left diagonaling seam. Follow this to a few scary moves straight up on crimps where the seam takes you left to the lip. Moving left is called the Marble. The sit start to the Marble (same as the Centaur) is considered a V11.


Location 

Straight up the middle of the east face of the boulder.


Protection 

At least 3-4 pads and a couple of spotters. There is an awkward shelf below the problem and the end is fairly high. Many wait for early summer when the snow is high to tackle this finish.
