Doesn't the name say enough? This friction-dependent one move wonder is over way too quickly, and while the movement is fun, it would be a whole lot better if it led to more climbing. Sit start the slightly overhanging short face with your right hand pinching the arete wherever you can find enough friction to hold on. Pull on a crimp sidepull with your left hand to help control the inevitable barndoor. The feet are obvious. Now just pull off the ground and dyno to a good jug up and left. Stick it, and topout.
This problem is on the Mutant Boulder, a tiny little thing nearly at the top of the hill off to the left of Cream & Sauce when coming up the trail. If you can find the Whip, look uphill to the left. There is a fallen tree resting on this boulder. The problem is on the uphill side.

Worth doing once, but I think 'The Mutant' is better.
