Description Suggest change

This improbable line is on the far left side of the Calm Boulder. It is easily recognized by a three finger pocket at about 4 foot height. Start by grabbing a small sidepull with your left hand right above the pocket (the pocket is tempting, but trust me, it's easier with the sidepull), and a scoop/edge up and right with your right hand. Paste your left foot on nothing and heel hook out and right with your right foot. Now, without giving away too much, head up towards a TINY little crystal sticking out (it looks like a dog's canine) and eventually a nice jug near the top. This problem requires familiarity with needles climbing (I think), and the ability to be confident on really small holds. This will be a four star problem when the low sit-start is done, which starts on a low sloping ledge down and left of the pocket.
