A crashpad and (ideally) a spotter.

A little contrasty because of the shadow due to late afternoon sun angle, but you can still see the majority of the holds. This picture is from the right-hand-side from on top of a small boulder.

[Hide Comment] This problem is intimidating at first but is really fun and doable for a V2 boulderer with a little gumption. Be careful with pad placement as you may swing out back as you fall. I did this solo but took lots of controlled falls to make sure I wouldn't miss the pad. Trend right for the top out (chalky holds are visible). Aug 13, 2020
