A neat hidden problem on a steep, rounded prow that features a big sloper and a committing finish to the tip of the prow. The landing area is enclosed by steep walls, adding considerable fear factor to an already highball endeavor. Luckily, the holds lead the climber directly over the tight landing zone. A beautiful moderate classic requiring some boldness.
Directly above the Heart Cave about 50 feet. Pumping Romex climbs out of a deep, dark cavern cut by the same water that drains down into the Heart Cave. To get there, climb padless straight out the Heart Cave through a v1 face to chimney hole then scramble straight up for 50 feet, or hike with your pad starting to the right of the Heart Cave. The problem is invisible until you can peer down on it from above through a deep slot.
