Description 

This short problem always seems fun, although if you're just breaking into V4 bring an extra pad to protect the possible backflop off the crux. Sit start in the cave on the juggy shelf (hopefully the birds aren't nesting on it) and pull out left to another large hold. Fly out left to the hanging arete (crux) and pull over the roof onto the thin slab above. Once you're standing, you can just run up the slab to top it out.


Location 

Located directly behind the Info Booth in the little cave. Downclimb the lower boulder off left.

The start hold is no more. Stand start on the good hold on the arete.

The Sit start lives! Ezra Landis did it this morning. I would say the sit start goes at V4.
