Crux is pulling off the ground. You can either start matched on the lower black feature (significantly harder, due to lack of feet), or reach up and start with your left hand on the next higher black feature. Crimp to a mantle move, then stand up and collect yourself for some easy but heady crimping to the top.
Downclimb is on the opposite side.


From the upper mound "basecamp" clearing, head north through a jumble of boulders, then look right for the high west-facing slab. Climb down to the start, on a chalked black pasted-on-looking feature.


Pad, spotter for protecting the low crux. After that, you're basically soloing above a bad landing.
