From the sharp flake move left onto small rounded knobs. Then a small crimp out left and a sloping gaston. From here move to the top. The feet are pretty terrible, the wall overhangs about 30 degrees and the holds would be OK on a vertical wall.

I have not even tried it but it looks hard, even the start. If anyone has done it please post your thoughts.


On the steep, short uphill side of the boulder, find the toilet bowl cut out that makes for a nice downclimb. Look down and left of the cut out and find the sharp flake sidepull/gaston in a seam, this is the start.
