Description

A slightly more difficult & direct version of the Standard Route with a fun mantle move in the middle of the face. Stand start a few feet right of the arete with an undercling directly below a slopey dish. Pull off the ground and grab the hidden seam in the back of the dish. Do what you have to do to be able to mantle the dish and reach up into the crack. Once you're in the crack, it's a juggy romp up and right to the topout way off the deck.

Location

Yosemite Boulder (El Cap). This problem starts right of the arete facing the trail to Devil's Den. Downclimb through the large chimney system.
