Description Suggest change

Begin from a low sit start matched under the roof in the obvious place, make 2-3 moves on decent edges, then sort out the tricky crux toss/throw to either a faraway jug or a somewhat closer but poor sloping crimp out left. A good problem, but its only 10 feet to the lip and it really only has one "hard" move ... that move is a doozy though.

Location Suggest change

Walk through the Bierstadt Corridor towards The Ladder, passing Ludders Pinch and Bierstadt on your right. Ten feet after passing Bierstadt, when you exit the A-frame arch/cave, turn around to your left. The Sober Stoner is right in front of you beginning from a sds under a short roof and ascending an up-valley facing bulge.
