Wishful Thinking.

Description 

A nice power problem on near friction less rock. Start on a two pinches, where foot placement is paramount for success. Pop to a flat shelf and move up and right for a stiffer grade and likely V6- or continue straight up on better feet bring the grade to V5.

Location 

On the roof side of the Supernova Boulder. Thirty seconds from the parking lot.

There is a traverse to this problem called the Wishful Thinking Traverse. It starts on the same pinch-slopers and goes left at the first hold, through a series of heel hooks, pinches and blocks. It is V6 and finishes on a hidden jug around the corner.

I don't think this was my FA... I'd change the FA to unknown.
