Perfect arete climbing on amazing Joe's sandstone. Start in the obvious pockets at the base of the arete and climb crimps, pockets, seams and the occasional friction slap/squeeze to hold on till the top. Top out is a bit cryptic; recommend taking a look at the top before blindly throwing for "jugs."
ADMIN edit: This problem tops out on the left side of the arete. The direct finish is also V6.
Take the climber's path (on the left) of the Hulk boulder uphill for about 20 yards; a small cliffband will come into view. Go through the obvious break in the band (take care not to dislodge or trundle rocks). Once on top, immediately go right. The Boulder will come into view after about 50 yards. Obvious arete.
A few pads and an attentive spotter.
