Description

Begin by climbing moderate moves until right under the 1st bolt. Now get ready for the crux: pick from an assortment of slope-y pockets to set yourself up for a throw to a crack. It is only then that you can clip the first bolt, so a stickclip is highly recommended. Continue up a few crack systems, do a fun throw to a large pocket, and if you can find the right holds, the top won't give you any problems.

All in all, a fun boulder problem whose difficulty lies almost entirely in the one crux move.

Location

Up the hill to the left of Pee-Wee, on the short, mossy face.

Protection

3 bolts with fixed anchors. Well protected, except for the first bolt: highly recommend stickclip.
