Matt L pressing out the mantle

Description 

Really the only bad thing about this problem is how low the start is.

Start from a SDS off of a positive 8 finger edge. Move up edges to the base of the scoop feature. Make a long move out left to a knob and mantle into the scoop to reach a knob. From here figure out how to move into the crack and stand up. Once you are standing you should be all good.

Location 

This is the first boulder you come to in the area and climbs the face you see as you approach from a low SDS on a nice 8 finger edge.

Protection 

Pad and spotter.
