It's just a few moves but many different types of holds. I've heard several people refer to the upper portion with the knobs as "the brain". Be mindful of hand placement on "the brain" however; birds sometimes crap up there! Apr 26, 2017

Awesome problem, overhanging to a high bulge. Don't grab the sideways crimp on the right at the start with a right hand Gaston even though you really want to. Grab it with your left and swing straight up to the large pocket that's up and further right. Skip that Undercling on the left of it, you don't need it, and it makes the movement awkward. Feb 9, 2014
Certainly easier if you have a long reach. A pair of long moves and you're right there at the very positive knobs at the top. The initial holds are slick but the problem on the whole didn't seem to lend itself to being burdened with sand as others did, which was totally welcome. Sep 20, 2013

One of my favorites I have done here so far. A good reach at the beginning to a pinch on the roof, then the fun knobs following that for an easy finish. Feb 1, 2012
