This line is hard. Troy had much different beta from me and basically did the thing in one move. I had to pull up, hit the high left gaston, and fall right hand into the sidepull thing close the the arete above the start hold. Then I got right foot on a smear, left foot on a higher good foot, and throw LH up left to the slopey lip. The top out wasn't a gimme either.

This line has alright movement the way I did it but it's sharp and short, felt less awkward then The Runaway though. Why does boulder natural have so many "meh" moderates?
