Description 

This problem is so much better than it looks. Although it is rarely climbed, it can be a lot of fun. Start with a good left hand crimp and a bad seam for your right hand. There is a good foot underneath. Bump your right hand up to a better hold, then dyno up and left with your left to a slopey lip. Campus over for a few moves until you can get your feet back on, then topout straight up.

Clean off the lip before you attempt it.

Location 

On the back of the Balance Boulder, just left of the downclimb, around from Anasazi.

The right hand bump that is mentions in the description is that up to the lip?

No, you start with your right hand on the terrible sidepull seam and then bump it to a good crimp/edge a little bit above. And then you dyno/deadpoint to the lip with the left hand. It's not a very good problem.

I agree it isn't great. Pulling off of the ground is the crux.
