BETA PHOTO: Brett's Mom with a very wet starting hold

Description 

Sit start on a good hold in the crack just right of the tree (same as for Glass Blower (aka Pygmies & Cornrolls)). Move up to a smiley face edge. A big move to a sloping rail over the lip, move right and up for the tough mantle (find a crimp for success!). Dynamic, delicate, fun!

Location 

On the Storm boulder to the right of Ride the Lightning. Starts in the group of trees.

Protection 

Pad and a spotter

Start hold is often wet, so I don't think this problem gets the love it deserves. Very good line.

Brett Meyers had the FA, but having the names of his problems changed once in print seems to be a running joke between him and Tim.

After 3 sessions of constantly falling off the mossy topout I finally figured out beta that worked for me and pulled it off. The starting hold will more than likely be wet and the topout is pretty awkward but overall pretty cool climb worth trying if you like challenging topouts. Beta if you want it. First clip

This thing is an awesome mixture of a sloper, crimp, and crux top out. It would be classic if that crimp weren't so sharp. Seriously, you could loose a day's worth of skin if you pulled on it for 10+ seconds. Anyway, great climb, but that stupid crimp reduces a star.
