Description 

Start by sitting/squatting under the roof using a good left crimp and an ok slick crimp covered in gray paint. Make your way up and out the roof to a jug (may need to jump) and up on more jugs to the difficult slopey arete top out (crux).

Downclimb on the back.

Location 

Tombstone boulder facing the road, hard to miss this boulder/problem.

Protection 

pad and spotter is nice.

Really fun dyno off the start and then a campus up to the jug above. Top out is definitely the crux, but a left instep on the jug may help out with that.

Can be done without a dyno by using a sneaky left toe hook on the arete.

Tried a lot of different body positioning before finally nailing the the jug throw to start. self-trust and layback positioning to pull the finish move.
high right foot went for me to get the topout- great route!
