This climb is between Butthole Express and the Y Crack. There is nice arching undercling extending left from the Y Crack. This problem ascends the face that is the leftmost under this undercling and mantling over. One can take the undercling over to the Y crack for fun. Aftermoves go easy via a right finger crack.

PULL! Found myself using nothing but fingers for the undercling and gently pasting my feet on little nothings of polished rock. The undercling is super fun and challenging.
