Description 

This is another fat crack boulder problem. It has two versions, one that finishes in The Dungeon and one that finishes out. Both versions start with hands on the opposite side from where your ending. In either case start on hands and then work through an offwidth pod in the middle of the roof. One side finishes on tough flared hands with an easy offwidth topout and the other finishes on tough deep fists/big hands that lead to a more difficult offwidth topout. Its only detraction is how close to the ground you are when going through the pod.


Location 

This is the lowball slotty roof crack in the cave at the heart of the east end of The Dungeon.


Protection 

A pad or two is sufficient. The version that exits outside The Dungeon is a bit more committing, and it has an uneven landing.
