|The Split Boulder
A fun, short power problem that climbs a bottomless block. Sit start with both hands matched on a sloping jug rail on the bottom right corner. Heel hook next to your hands to pull on and dangle before making a move out to the edges, bump left hand again, then match. Rock up on the heel and around the arete to a crimp (crux) or the lip if you're long.
This problem is at 1:48
This boulder is a chunk of the Split Boulder, behind Halcyon and My Little Pony. If facing those problems, walk right about ten feet.
So close, but so far away...

So do you start with your hands matched on the rail where his heel hook is in the picture?

Yep. Two hands and a heel where his heel is now to start, then move left to where his left hand is before reaching for the crimp as seen.
