Sit start from two good jugs to an obvious chalked flake. Body tension and/or huck to the top. Technical and fun. Once you have the beta dialed, its easy.
On the Flat Top boulder, facing the main parking area. Look for a miniature cave next to the name "Trujillo" written on the rock.
Maybe a pad. Good landing though

This problem has no name, according to Noah Bigwood's Big Bend guide, but the name "Trujillo" carved into the rock has led to a great many people (myself included) to call it what it is listed as here. If the FA (or Mr. Trujillo) have any opinions on it, let'em speak.
This problem is incredibly short, maybe 3 moves in total, and incredibly good. Its a good feeling finally slapping the top of the boulder, as this problem requires a lot of control and finesse. You can't just pull hard and hope to send.
You can get away without a pad, and one actually gets in the way until you're out of the cave.
