Description 

(This is line "E" in red on the map of the spring boulder)

This is a classic southern top-out. Master this mantle/press and you can top-out most anything.

Sit start on the large ledge at the bottom of the boulder.
make a biggish move up to another huge ledge, and then toss to the turtle shell sloper formation above. Move dynamically at the top to mantle.
