This is a very infamous Bozoo heady test piece. A bit headier if you are on the short side. Climb the low angle slab to reach "The Brain" make a long move above the braing from a painful finger-lock to the jug at the apex of the boulder. Tall technical and commiting (18'). Crux at end.

British Mike nearly left his index finger in the finger lock after his foot slipped. The blood that oozed out of that hold and down the face intimidated interested climbers for years afterward. The bone deep cut healed, and I believe he came back and sent a while later.
