Trixie uses girl technique (ie good technique).

This is one of the best problems here. Move up into an undercling at the start. You can knee bar with your left leg as you reach for the "belly button." Make big moves to slopers with a high step or heel hook in the "belly button." Top out with great holds, that may or may not be attached....


This is near the right side of the boulder is an awesome bulge with a big sloper in the middle.


A couple pads.

I did this pretty easily without a knee bar or a heel hook....
