Worth the effort, If you can figure out the bouldery start. From the pedastel, launch into the thin seam crack with great pro to a bolt. Mantel the move at the bolt. Load up on whatever gear you can for the finish.
Option 1. Move right on easier ground for the original finish.
Option 2. Move left then climb just right of the arete.
Option 3. Fire straight up on fierce and powerful crimps.
There is a 2 bolt anchor at the top that serves all 3 options.
50 ft to the right of Southern Boys. Starts on a pedastel beneath an obvious seam/crack.
small to medium stoppers, a selection of tcus, camalots to red

Direct finish felt 12a for sure, maybe it was just the size of the holds you're on relative to the runout above gear.

^ direct finish is distinctly harder than the original finish which cuts out right. You will take log some flight time if you blow it as there is not really any gear after the big horizontal until you top out on the ledge
