I'm surprised this route hasn't been posted already. Though not as popular as other highballs such as The Whip, this route offers good climbing on a striking crack. The commitment level is comparable to The Whip and over a worse landing. Start on a jug at waist height and stand tall to establish the crack. Cool moves lead to a committing smear to reach a great fingerlock. Once you establish the lock, take a breath and reach the lip.
on the "Big and Tall" boulder. The obvious HB crack right of the usual downclimb.

pretty bad sloping landing - an ankle could definitely snap if you peeled near the top
