As the name implies, the crux of this one is topping out. Start on the ugly glue-reinforced flake at head height and make a hard move or two to get established on the sloping lip of the boulder. Throw your heel up over your head into an insecure dish and begin the hard process of rocking over. There are some small edges and divots high up on the slab that will eventually help to you get your weight onto your heel and stand up, if you make it there!


To the right of Child of the Storm on the Swirly boulder. Start on the unusual flake with the obvious line of glue behind it.


Pads and a spot. The landing isn't perfect and you can get ejected from this problem with a great deal of momentum if your heel goes.
