WARNING!!!

WARNING-THE BLOCK ON THE UPPER 1/4 OF THE PROBLEM IS LOOSE. IF SOMEONE PULLED THIS OFF A LOT OF PAIN OR DEATH MIGHT OCCUR!!!
This might not really be a problem as the block is chocked between a couple of other blocks but if I were you I would definitely check it out for myself!

DESCRIPTION-
Really long reaches between pockets and slopers up amazing limestone. Start on the opposite side of the pocketed boulder on two obvious flat holds. Use wild footwork to get yourself under the bulge into the meat of the problem. May need a little brushing as this problem has yet to be repeated or even tried since the first ascent. A little intimidating but nothing 6 pads and 3 spotters can't remedy. Would be four stars but the landing is far from perfect AND THAT UPPER BLOCK IS POSSIBLY READY TO BREAK OFF!

Location

Near the base of the gorge directly beneath the right side of the main cliff (namely Blockhead and One Finger Solution) is a small boulder field. This boulder problem is mainly on the back side of the small, rectangular shaped boulder. You'll recognize it by the ridicules landing.

Protection

A Lot of crash pads and a lot of spotters
