Description

Find the Diamond Boulder and use the slopey hand in the low, far underside of the overhanging boulder to start. Lock off to the slopey center pinch. Blast to the lip and hold the swing. Top out with the easy jug.

Location

Diamond Bopulder in the Cereal Buttress Area (Above the Politition Area). The Diamond Boulder can be tricky to find but once you do it is unmistakable.

Can be very difficult to locate. The best landmark that i've found may have been a result of the fire:

In between the trail that leads from The Politician to the Pit BBQ boulder look for two giant trees that are leaning over to create a giant "X" in the air. Walk straight to it and the problem is in a little cave right near where the "X" would be. Mar 6, 2017

I would also like to know about the foot, the match move feels super difficult without using the lower block. Jan 5, 2013
