Arizona native Kayle Koeppen topped this one out on the 25th of June, 2010.
Walk down the LRT past the top look out, passing the room and then following the trail past a sharp turn in the trail. Look for the massive "Mouth-of-Wilson" boulder which is large platform boulder with another, severely overhanging boulder on-top of it forming an abstract pacman type mouth that is called the "Mouth-of-Wilson" from the name of a local community... walk just past this and walk off the trail to the back of the Mouth-of-Wilson formation where there is another heavy inclined boulder surface and a tunnel/cave looking opening formed by the leaning boulders. this problem traverses the lip of the inclined boulder from the start at the far right of the boulder, and topping out at the jug notch on the front, prominent, overhanging face...
Sit-start to the far right on a jug under the lip. move up to the boulders lip, heel hook, and trend left and around to the front of the face to the tall, prominent jug notch to the easy top out. press the lip and scramble across the top to the laurel/Rhodo covered top of the boulder and walk off to the right
