This problem is actually on a separate boulder below the Buoux Boulder. Walk downhill and slightly right from Speed to locate it. Begin with your left hand in the three obvious monos and your right on the thin edge then go straight up. Classic! Mar 29, 2007

This was a classic route! I found the crux is when you're hands are on the sloper rails and you're trying to find tge right feet for your body type. LOVE IT! Mar 18, 2012

I back flopped on my first attempt and was really glad we had a pad set back on the rock sticking out of the ground away from the boulder, but still under the problem. Just a helpful hint for pad placement if you bring an extra :) Apr 1, 2012

agreed that the crux is actually when you're trying to find the best way to the lip from the sloper.
Tricky and fun!
