Description

As you approach the tall, dark front face look to the right of the super highball. The lower right face has two prominent cracks, and this problem ascends the left crack.

Sit start on the small "starting block" slab that is under the boulder with your hands matched on the lower right side of the crack's base. pick up and cross over (my favorite move on the line) and up to the next quality jug on the adjacent side of the crack.

Gain a higher right side gaston on a raised portion inside. side-pull some to gain nice ripply pockets further up, which give way to the jugs that lead to the topout.

Matt broke the starting hold on this problem. If you are afraid of cracks you can gaston the outside where the hold used to be for a much harder start. If you aren't afraid of cracks, stick your hand inside the crack for a few inches to find a nice incut hold, that hold and your arm camming against the other side of the crack feels like a huge jug for the start.
