This problem might not be much to look at, but it's actually quite fun. Very hard V6 in my opinion. It takes some effort to work the beta out, there's some funky moves on this one.

Start matched on the big black sloper on the left side of the boulder. Move into the obvious sidepull to the right, avoiding the holds on the lip. Use some combination of brute strength and technique to keep moving right, and make a big move out right to a sloper on the lip. Top out when you can.


After forking right on the trail, look out to the left for a large boulder that looks like a turtle.


You don't really even need a crashpad, since it's like four feet off the ground.
