BETA PHOTO: The lower flake and upper blank face. You can see ...

Description 

This is a neat problem starting on a flake that ends just when you need it most. Look for the "Dagger," a loose (but secure) block hanging over the face.

This climbs the flake/face just right of the block. Continue up the blank looking face with small nubbins and crimps. The topout is definitely highball, but the crux is the last six or so feet below the topout.


Location 

This is on Down Under, on the long face between the other established boulder problems and the face that contains "Splitter."

Walk off the climber's left from the ledge, take the trail around or just scramble down the base off left.


Protection 

Two pads, two spotters is ideal. Make sure that the climber doesn't hit the ankle/knee breaker block directly under the climb.

Optional TR from gear (#2, 0.5, 0.3 BD works well).
