This beast of a boulder problem packs the punch of a route - close to 40 feet, but due to all the climbing under the roof and the slope of the ground your feet will only tickle the 20 foot-mark near the top. Before you jump on the upper section, be sure to realize the seriousness of the down-climb, which is down the northeast face/arete.

Start way down on the left side of the roof in the huecos. Move out the roof sightly right using fins and huecos to a large hueco with a jug on the right side, just before the lip of the roof. Bust out right into the crux using sharp crimps and good footwork to the big move up to the large sidepull/jug. Follow the path of jugs and big moves up and right all the way to the top.

Downclimb the northeast face. (be careful!)

Beware the large holds towards the end of this problem. Even though the climbing is 'easy' you definitely have to make large moves from the two biggest and they seem crispy/fractured. Same goes for the downclimb.
