Gettin' some on the upper boulder problem

Description 

Climb an excellent boulder problem on big pockets to a rest. Pull out onto the face and one more boulder problem then cruise to the chains on an excellent and easy face.

Location 

Past the Stephen King Library but before the Balcony area proper. About 25' to the right of "Mad Cow .12b" and just left of "Tool .11d" Look for an overhanging pocketed prow with lots of chalk.

Protection 

11 bolts plus a two bolt anchor

Very fun route. I was able to find four no-hands rests on this thing...not sure if it deserves 12a just because of that. Regardless, great climbing. Definitely recommended.
