Description

Start on a high left facing hueco and move upward through sequential moves on flakes that get increasingly worse as you go. Match the top flake and make a heady move to the top of the boulder. Match and pull over to the finish. The book lists this as a challenging mantel, but with the right holds it shouldn't feel too bad. Might be a good idea to pre-inspect the topout if you are at your limit.

There is also a sit start to this that adds in a few moves and bumps the grade up to V6.

Location

On the backside of the Gunks boulder. Almost directly opposite New Religion.

Protection

Pads, preferably lots of them. The landing zone slopes away so you are quite high by the time you get to the top.
