Start low and make your way up crimps, small pockets, and other small features. The line stays in the middle of the boulder on beautiful black and tan streaked rock. L. D. Young showed this problem to me in November of 2011 and when I was lucky enough to get the FA in 2012.

[Hide Comment] I was in this area today. The coordinates I have for the boulder problem Joe's Simulator, pictured here, are listed below. I have no idea where the problem named Holy Cross is, but I assume it is nearby.
