Description

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

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
