Start just around corner just right of Beached Whale on the Kahuna Boulder. Sit start in small alcove with a good right foot and good starting hand holds. Move up to an okay pocket left hand and bust left again to the arete. Move up and right to the right-leaning seam. Small feet make these move spicy. A bad match in the seam allows you to drop right hand to a good mailbox slot. Keep your head together and pray your feet don't shake off of the small footholds and move your way up on good holds to the top. It has a bad landing, so use lots of pads!! Scott Blunk did the F.A. for stand start, great find!! "In a Pickle."
This is on the Kahuna Boulder just right of Beached Whale. Sit start in small alcove with heel hook on stand start foot hold, good starting hand holds to an okay left pocket. Stand start, just right of that on a big foot, good right crimp, ok left pocket to an awesome right hand pinch!
Walk off to left down good ramp.
Lots of pads.

I'd like to know when the supposed FA got this, because when we saw this over 2 yrs ago, it was a project with over 20 people with tons of pads attempting the FA. This was sent from the sit start by my friend Brandon from Lafeyette in about 2 tries. Ashley Overton nearly flashed this, but his foot blew off just before topping it out.

Jarthur, I was there that day, too. Really nice efforts from both Ashley and Brandon. I'm not sure why you were thinking it was still a project, but EZ had already done the sit, and Jim Fuller (not Scott) had done the stand before that. Scott and Jim who were both there that day, as well as the day when EZ did the full line, can attest to the timing.
