On the steep South face of the 'Happy Boulder', sit-start down and right on a juggy shelf. Steep moves lead to a left hand pinch and right hand sidepull/undercling. Make a big move up and left to the big block just below the lip (the "Boss" hold). From here, finish either up and left or up and right, same difficulty.

Description is a little dyslexic. Many sequences to gain "the boss" hold, which is the crux...and that's part of what makes this a great problem, there are many ways to solve it, yet all are slightly awkward. Awkwardness makes this a 3, rather than 4 star. Dec 6, 2008

A hard right toe into the hueco is a must to do the right hand cross to the big boss hold Apr 23, 2012
Sneaky left knee bar after matching the boss allows you to easily cross your left hand and finish right without stress.
