Description 

The extended start to Ride the Lightning. Squat/sit start with two holds in the crack and a good right foot. Make a big move left to grab a sloper, drop right hand into the left start hold, then work your feet left. Match the sloper (crux) and move to a jug or an undercling before grabbing the holds of RTL. Finish on RTL.

The moves can be fun, unfortunately, the problem is wet most of the time. It is rare to find it in climbable condition.

Location 

From Ride the Lightning, move right about 10 feet. The start of this problem is in the grove of trees.
