Description 

Start on a big jug climb up to the arete, then use a few crimps to gain the lip. Reach back for a decent hold and try not to tear all of the skin off of your knees. Walk off left.

Location 

This is on the NE corner of the Kahuna Boulder, about 20 feet left of Beach Crack.

Protection 

Pad, spotter, and long pants.

Seen this one forever and recently hopped on. Depending on flexibility, V5 seems fair if not a bit generous as the crux (for me) was in the mantle. A heel-hand match really makes the sequence quite reasonable and the mantle is not that bad. Good little problem.
