Start laying back with hands matched on a rail on the south face of the boulder. Move right to round the corner onto the east face. Keep ascending and moving right till you top out just before rounding the corner to the north face.

The original line stays low on the wall with your feet following a rail underneath a small roof. If you stay low on the east face, you get to do a unique sequence involving a stem and a mantle. It is one of the coolest moves out at Rigg's on a low level problem.


Go uphill about 70-80 feet from V5-. If you're facing uphill, it is the left of two boulders forming a corridor up to the cliff band. The problem starts just before entering the corridor and ascends up through it.


A pad if you want. The traverse stays really low, so stepping off is not a problem.

I'm just putting this route up in case Bryan never gets around to doing it himself. I wanted to get the details down while I'm fresh.
