Description

An obvious problem on the second boulder you come to. Starts on the big juggy rail at the lip of the 45 degree face. Grab the rail, heel hook, yard up to a side pull, slap up to a sloper and get on your feet. Done! There's a cool v8 sit start with a crap undercling for your left and a slopey sidepull for the right. Be careful not to pull too hard on the undercling - it's fragile! Get your feet established and throw for the starting jug.

Also on this boulder are several unnamed problems: a v1 crack/juggy face around the corner to the right of Backdoor; a v6/7 painfully thin face finishing with a sloper immediately to the right; a v3/4 face 5 more feet to the right using fun edges, and a v2 next to that.

Protection

One pad, but having a spotter is nice when you commit to that heel hook.
