Description 

Start hands in separate jugs on lowest part of East side of boulder with right toe under roof and left heel hooked on face. Traverse over great edges North until you reach almost the end of the boulder. Get really high foot and bump right hand out to crimp on face and left hand to micro edge sidepull on left. Pull up to crimp with left hand and then reach for top. Dangerous fall from crux. Committing move...have a couple good spotters. I am pretty sure this is a first ascent due to the lack of chalk and the fact that I scrubbed lichen of the three face holds that make it doable. If anyone else has done this line...speak up. I suggest V5-6, but hell it could be V0 or VA-Million...who knows?

Location 

When looking at Balance in Nature, turn around and look to your right at a large overhanging block that juts off to the right.

Protection 

Attentive spotters.

We did the problem you describe here last spring. Someone probably did it before we did. Either way, it is a pretty good line and I am surprised there is not more chalk on it. Nice addition to the site.
