Description

Steep edges and powerful moves, with awesome trick beta that makes it much easier. Climb from low left in the overhang, starting with the lowest holds you can - a good left edge, and slightly not as good right edge, about four feet apart. Power to the good hold right, and finesse your way into the set up for the big throw to the rounded crimp. From there, do super cool moves to the finish, and at the 12 foot mark, make your way over the rounded hump to top out.
Please see comment from first ascentionist below for perspective.

Location

On the overhang of the smaller of the two Unearthed boulders. Climbs entirely left of the giant jug in the middle of this face (this giant jug is not "off" or anything, thankfully, it's just out of your way. This isn't some vile eliminate).

Protection

2 pads, probably.

super fun line!! i also did the low start, which probably clocks in at v6. I also did a low start to the right with a big move to the shelf and then up from there. That one was tuff. Sep 30, 2014

Thanks Andrew! Hm. Id never seen anyone climb it, or a video or anything. So I started lower than the original. I think the first couple of moves did add a touch of difficulty. Great FA. May 16, 2014
I got the FA of this thing the day after we finished hosing it off. I started about 2 feet below the flat shelf hold on a now-broken left crimp and a small right crimp, went straight up, felt V5-V6ish, i called it 'buried alive'. Never done the start from the left like this, going from the shelf is fun enough for me.

To the right of this is another great route, starting high off of a shelf feature to a fun lunge/long reach to a crimp under the lip and a fun mantle, seemed 2/3ish. Did a low start too, went at something a lot harder but has crumbled into nonexistence. No name so far, welcome to suggestions. May 15, 2014
