This problem is just about 6 ft. to the right of Calm Before the Storm and is recognizable by an obvious small rib sticking out at the top of the boulder. That's where you are heading.Start with a decent right hand crimp at about 6 ft. height and a high left hand sidepull edge. As with Calm, paste your left on and heel hook out and right with your right foot. From that position, pop with your left hand up and left to a bad pinch, swing your feet underneath you and fight up to the rib. You'll feel comfortable there, but that comfort quickly disappears when you try topping out.
