This boulder is low-lying and stands roughly twelve feet tall or less very close to Southern Discomfort, Slot Machine, and Violins. Start in a "cave" with a heel and hand on a bulge, left hand on the face on a sloper. Move with right hand up to pockets on face. V5 finish is up and left on a sloper, V3 finish is to the arete on the right. Very powerful problem and a load of fun.
Also, there are variations to this problem which make it harder or easier (like most things in the Rock Maze).
Kind of a downhill landing, but very easy to protect falls. A spotter would be nice, too.

Does anyone know if you use the arete to the right and then go for the sloper that is up and to the left for the v5 finish, or do you just go straight up from the two pockets to the sloper?
