Amazing problem! For a squat start through middle of boulder is steep fun problems on interesting holds. Just when the steepness ends and the problem becomes vert to low angle, holds disappear and the top-out is quite strenous and mind crunching.
Avoiding a directissma finish their is a V-ez bailout continuing to the extreme left following the doable start avoiding the dangerous holdless finish of IBuddha.
Their is a V-physical 2 to the climbers right of the illustrious Buddha that is quite good with holds through its entirety but remains physical and steep even for the top-out and the landing on a bad hillside.
On Scratch and Spliff Boulder, opposite axis of Scatch and Spliff Traverse. While climbing the Illustrious Buddha your back is to the road, versus Far and Away where you are facing the road while climbing.
Pad, base has been leveled out quite well.
