Do some cool steep gym-like moves on crimps, and stand up on the slopey ledge to the right. Apparently, most people just drop off from here, but I think the finish is awesome and totally worth doing. It's much easier than the start, but it's really high and kinda scary.


If you are looking at Ode to Failure, this problem is directly behind you, on the right side of the big boulder. Start on two low crimps with lots of chalk.


Two pads is good enough.
