Curmudgeon.

Description 

Begin under the right side of the overhang in the alcove, at a right-facing jug. Climb more or less straight out on a series of perfect crimps, with some super fun moves that would make this an absolute classic if it weren't for the obnoxious slab to the right. Holds in and left of the crack are off for hands, but all usable feet (excepting the slab) are fair game.

Location 

This is in the alcove up and left of Cloud Shadow, on the first obvious formation.

Protection 

A couple pads for the uneven landing and a pad for the slab if you'd like. A spotter is recommended.

Fun problem but loses a star because of the contrived-ness of it. Find the amazing heel toe cams to make the crux easier.
