Sit start, move up short overhanging face on sharp crimps to strange scooping topout directly above start.
Try this one with fresh fingers and watch them as they start to bleed.


Just to the west Ride the Lightning boulder in jumble of boulders. Problem faces Ride the Lightning boulder.

I found this problem to be hard and fun... The old book called it V2 which i thought was a funny joke...

Gotta disagree. I think this thing is a pile. Obviously, YMMV.

Maybe I'm weird but I like this a lot better than Hobbit Hole.

I thought that this was a fun problem with a cool cruxy top out. It's aesthetic and has cool movement. But it has what I call the S+S(sharp and short), so I'd give it two stars. But in no shape or form is it better than Hobbit Hole.
