A good highball on a very unique boulder. Begin sitting at a shelf low and right. Trend up and left past slopers and a flake to gain the huge holds atop the block, then continue moving up and left through crimpy, very committing moves to a relatively simple rockover well off the deck. Originally, the problem ended at the buckets on the block. V4 and still worth doing if you're not up to the scary exit.


Climbs out the right side of the huge alien-head/mushroom boulder in the center of the Heart Cave. Follow the chalk.


Multiple pads and an attentive spotter.
