Description-Locus of control is a theory in personality psychology referring to the extent to which individuals believe that they can control events that affect them. One's "locus" (Latin for "place" or "location") can either be internal (meaning the person believes that they control their life) or external (meaning they believe that their environment, some higher power, or other people control their decisions and their life).
This one was WAY more fun that it looked to me as I started it.
On the far left side of the vertical face of this boulder is where you will find this problem. Look for the low, jagged jug flake that is very close to the ground (the left heel hook hold for "Polytechnic). This is the start hold.
Sit start quite awkwardly with high funky feet. Lock off on the start and pop up to a bad, feint pinch, and then bump again further up to the very small dimple at the boulders lip just a few inches left of the left facing chunk sidepull... If you're really strong you could just go to the top?
Move up and utilize the sidepull to help gain the massive fin jug for the top out hold.
