Description 

There are two distinct moves on this route. First get into the upper undercling (two positive slots right next to each other). Then, working your feet up above the flake, go for the crystals directly above. Don't use anything on the arete. This is a short problem, but rewarding.
A variation is to go left for the bucket of Green Bucket from the undercling.


Location 

Right of Green Bucket, before the arete.
