Description 

This is a very cool, overhanging seam/dihedral that you pull on like a rail. Start on the obvious chalked up undercling under the bulge and finish on the crimp that is the terminus of the seam. This problem would be spectacular if it continued to the top of the boulder, but as is just drop off when you hit the crimp. The rock and movement on this problem still desrve three stars IMO.


Location 

At the very east end of The Dungeon, on one of the last big boulders up on the shelf. This is the obvious, steep, dihedral feature.


Protection 

A pad or two.

Hey Goodman, I know. That's why it would be nice to get this info right on this site so at least it is correct somewhere. Enough people seem to care about it that it would be nice to get it as right as we can. As is there is no real place to find out if what you have done is a first. As a result the best way to obtain the info. is to publish it somewhere (this site for example) and then wait patiently to find out if someone speaks up about it. This method is highly inefficinet. BTW, thanks for speaking up.

Additionally, the most recent Bouldering book to the area (Vedauwoo Bouldering by Davin Bagdonas) was a disaster. The whole process was rushed so much on that book that it turned out full of errors, more so than most guidebooks.
