As it names implies, "Tiptoe" is a technical boulder problem that focuses a lot on balance and sure feet to get the send. The crux is getting past the large chalked-up undercling - right hand to a good crimper, throwing left and pulling past the triangle-shaped sloper to a large bomber crimp that you can match on. A high right foot definitely helps here (use the crimper you used a right hand on above the undercling). Throw right to an awesome pinch, backstep your left foot, throw left to the large side-pull, and pull over the top leading with your right leg/foot. This is just the sequence that works for me, as I am sure that there are multiple ways to send this problem.
This boulder feels almost slicker with each passing year!
