Description 

This problem is found by walking through the corridor and as your almost through to the other side, look for the small two finger triangle to start on. this is before the arete/overhang.

Stand start at triangle and a left hand crimp. climb high face and top out over triangle. If sketched, stem to other boulder.

Jay says: First Tennis Shoe Ascent - Truc Nguyen Allen, repeated by Matthew Gant. FFA, probably 20 years ago (its that good)!

Local rite of passage - send this in your sneakers and you have mastered mantling! Not the hardest mantle, but sucker holds screw almost everyone up. Bailing across the corridor is safer than you might think! If you end your day on this side of the knob, get on this and go home happy! Please hire a spotter.
