Sit Start. Grab low crimps and make some difficult moves to gain the sloping rail. Traverse the rail to the left on crimps, and then top out the same as Brackish One. Classic.


Around the corner from the Slave Driver boulder, starts ~15 right of Brackish One if you are facing the boulder.

Anyone ever finish this boulder by going further left, to the obvious jug on the arete, then turning onto the slab and topping out? seems as obvious as avoiding that jug and going up the arete to the lip?
