An unexpectedly good problem.
Pass the bigger roof on the cold boulders most upper end, and on the flat face just past it is where you will find this line.
Look for the massive broken block under the boulder before the downed tree. You use this block to start the problem.
Before the block will be the starting holds. On the face, find the low in-cut, shallow pocket crimp. Lower and left of this, on the very base of the boulders face is a slopey portion with a small slopey crimp. These are the start hands.
Use the block to gain a very high heel. As soon as you situate the heel, pull toe off the block and it becomes off (only use it to help get onto the boulder problem). Work up the short face through hard moves and small holds to gain the top of the boulder for the direct top out.
LocationWalk down passed SLS and look off of the trail on your left for an interesting tree that grew out of the ground normally, and then curved low to the ground for 8 or 9 feet horizontally, and then shot up normally again. It is quite large. Look past this and you will see the top corner roof in the close distance off trail. walk to this and you will be at the top roof portion of the cold boulder where you will find this problem and many others such as "Cold as Ice" Ice Cold" Uncommon Cold" and this one. On the furthest end is "Surge Crack".
