Start deep in the cave. Please do not pull hard on the mostly detached block in center (should have an X on it). Use an undercling behind and right of this block in addition to the high left jug/edge. Still works as a proper SDS. Pull off the ground to match on the good huge sidepull, then bump out low and left. Continue out and up using dynamic movement. Crux seems to be pulling into the face, get creative! Excellent fun!


Far right amid the downstream Boulders. In a small alcove.
