Description 

Originally, the start was done with a full-out, all-points-off, "Leap of Faith" across the chasm from the Super Mario Boulder to the adjacent wall.

Future ascentionists, perhaps wary of the leap or perhaps just finding it completely unnecessary, found a "Lean of Faith" to work just fine.

Stem across from the top of the Super Mario Boulder to the adjacent wall. After navigating some tricky moves on the face, the crux comes at the beginning of the roof - grab some tiny edges and stick a long lunge to a good edge, eventually gaining a jug rest and technical face above.

Location 

Climb around the Super Mario Boulder to the back left corner, right next to Tubin' Dudes.

Protection 

6 bolts to bolted anchor.
