Description [Edit]

Start on a left hand side pull and more or less follow (just to the Right of) the thin seam over a bulge with big throws, square cut edges and a desperate topout with sketchy feet and hidden holds.

The topout of this problem used to be on good holds over a large hollow flake. The flake is now gone and as a result has upped the technical grade from V2 to V3. Spotting the scar that is now left is an easy way of identifying the route.

Location [Edit]

The furthest route to the left following a thin seam/crack on the overhanging (North) side of the Hidden Boulder. Easily identified by the seam leading to a large rock scar at it's top.

Yet again a hold broke leaving a big juggy topout for the past several months reducing the grade to maybe V1.

Well, just today I noticed that jug came off leaving only a big reach to a small crimp to the top. This kinda more or less resembles the original character of the route and puts the grade back at about V3. A consensus might be needed to confirm that. Aug 13, 2014
