Description

Located on the right side of the south face, just right of an obvious hueco which is Dino's Egg (V0 R), and left of a block which is the other half of the Dino's Egg Boulder.

Hang off some big huecos at the start with the right side of your body against the rock on the right - it can't be helped - and then work up and left into them and then up to finish, or better yet, by heading slightly right and stemming up a concave patina groove to finish. Make sure to have some spotters ready as falling at the wrong spot on this wouldn't be good.

This is a decent problem with some fun moves and good rock but the contrived start detracts slightly from the overall experience. Rated V1 in the Joshua Tree bouldering guide but it seems easier than the problems to the left; perhaps the harder rating comes from avoiding as much contact with the rock on the right as possible, but that seems silly and best left to children, leprechauns and other wee folk.
