This is a short, stout and interesting climb. It will make you work hard! Plan on perfect rock (that stays dry in the rain), small but solid gear for the most part, and enjoyable varied movement.
Basically there are 2 boulder problems with an ok rest in between. Start on a jug and climb a hard finger crack section to a good lock and a hand jam where you can get your only large piece of gear (a #2 or #3 camalot). Having a long reach or very small fingers helps on the first crux. Next balance up a few moves in to a blank corner with a thin seam (you can get a couple small nuts here) either reach high to a razor crimp and power out a few moves, or use some compression moves out left to gain the same finish jug.
Ps. If you are one who plans on a short 12a feeling V4 bring a little extra something for this one ;)
Just to the left of the Inhibitor 5.11a.
Small nuts and a yellow or blue camalot. 2 bolt anchor.

Cool video, was trying to steel some beta for that top crux. You know what the hardest part of clipping pre placed gear is???

That comment requires more balls than pink pointing. Neat video.
