Sit start on the right? As in that other rock under the boulder? Personally, I think it would add more value to just start on the lip and all other rocks would be off.
Anyway, fun route and quite the finishing mantle!

Mike, here's Dean's video: facebook.com/deanlords/videos/...

And his route description from the draft guide:
"Start underneath on the far right side. Pull onto the lip and traverse left to the very apex of the boulder, then mantle out. The big flat top boulder underneath is off."

So "sit start" wasn't accurate on my part, but he definitely uses the right pillar to get established.
