Description

This problem ascends the large face on the West/Northwest side of the boulder. There is a shallow arching crack moving up and left across the face about 18 feet off the ground. The start involves very tenuous smearing and crimping/slapping. After about 12 feet you reach some decent holds and move right to top out. The psychological crux is the very last move. It's not too hard, but you're a long ways up!

Location

Cat boulder, large W/NW face.

Protection

multiple pads and spotters. There is a bolt on top but it's better as a highball
