This is one of Vedauwoos best roof problems. The meat of the roof is a ten foot positive sloper rail followed by another ten foot positive sloper rail. At the end of the second rail, move out left to another smaller rail containing a positive crimp and then rock up onto the slab and top out. Getting from the end of the big rail to standing up on the slab is the crux. This one is an absolute classic.
Walk up as if going to Desiderata but when you hit the boulder filled gully before the slabs take a right and contour the gully. This problem is on a very large boulder on about the level of the gully, and it is on the easternmost side of the formation. The problem faces uphill, and is distinguished by its unique, V-shaped rail feature.
