This route provides a nice escape from the crowds on a busy day at Highlander crag. The first 60 feet is O.K., mellow climbing, to gain the ledge/overlap. Then a reachy clip leads to the cruxy final 40 feet of great climbing to the anchor.
A bit of loose rock still exists, but it can be easily avoided.

|Somewhat dirty - looks like it gets water down the face at the bottom. The crux is very bouldery and a little hard for the grade. I started climbing STBU by accident, thinking it was this climb. Really, since the crux is the bouldery overlap (with a ledge rest below it), a nicer overall climb, without sacrificing the grade, might be the first half of STBU, followed by the crux on BMOC.|

|This climb kicked my butt. I didn't warm up before trying it and got a little flash pumped at the crux. Maybe I missed something, but it felt a lot harder than 12a. It's basically an easy climb to a V5 boulder problem. I didn't care for it, but maybe I will give it another go some day. It was a little dirty but solid rock.|
