Description 

Starting on a bomber undercling flake, slap up left to good side-pulls on the arete. Good side-pull crimps out right. Keep slapping left hand up the arete until you come into a small right hand side-pull/undercling. The crux comes here with either a big move right hand or tenuous move left hand to a good hold on the arete. Once here continue up the arete with a small right hand crimp to better holds.


Location 

Facing the drainage, this problem is located on the northwest side of a boulder just up the hill from most of the other established problems. It's almost directly left of the very large bloc left of the 2nd Flatiron.


Protection 

Three pads and one spotter should be sufficient but more is better.

I just put this problem up yesterday, so the grade is tentative and surely requires confirmation. Since I was trying the problem by myself with two pads, the problem may not be as hard as posted. A guess at best. A great problem nonetheless! I'll probably return in the next week to show it to some friends, so some input and a photo soon to come. Check it out!

With the recent snow and moisture, I probably won't be up there for a bit, but I'll post some pictures as soon as I do.
