Starts on a huge flake with the crux being the toss to the left after the flake ends.

There was a huge flake jug on the face after pulling the lip that made this problem V2, but that got pulled off 1-2 years ago from what I've heard. When I did it the problem felt much harder. More like V3-V4 as the top out is now very techy and difficult. Sep 17, 2010

The route name is incorrect for the route being described here. It should be spelled Ostracizer which is the V2 flake. Osterizer V3 is another route on opposite side of boulder climbing a dihedral. Dec 6, 2013
Yes, this is Ostracizer. How do we get it corrected? And I agree that it is now harder than V2 -- pulling the lip is now really hard. Jan 9, 2014

A short discussion showed up in our Instagram feed about the block that fell off of this problem. I think it's interesting, so I'm reposting some of the information.

"A buddy of mine, Socorro climber Bob Broilo broke off the huge plate that's now located at the base of this boulder, mid-climb. A few years ago now, problem is definitely more committing than it used to be. He managed to rotate his body in the fall so that he didn't get hurt, but it split his brand new pad clean in two. Scary..."
