Travis Melin on "Billy Budd" (V-4) on the Belgrano...

Description 

such a fun boulder problem...

Sit start under the belly of the blade, low, on the obvious ledge and crack.
fire up to the shallow, small crimp rail. then dynamically to the larger rail above. work right to another diagonal rail and shoot to the lip for a fantastic ledge top out, just right of the tree.
(same top out as "cannonade")

Trying to keep in the same ballpark as the other seafaring names in the area, I chose "Billy Budd" which is a classic Herman Melville novel about a young sailor.

Location 

under the belly of the blade, on the fatty starting ledge.

Protection 

pads
