Description [Suggest Change]
Start at a prominant incut flake (not the jug rail just to the right) a bit left of center on the tall, slightly overhanging NW face of the 'Checkerboard Boulder'. Climb up and right to an exciting last move high off the deck. An excellent problem!
Location [Suggest Change]
This climb is located on the boulder farthest right in this area. This boulder also happens to be the largest in the area, so finding it should not be difficult.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Four or more pads would be ideal. The sloping rock under the left part of this problem has leg-breaking potential.
