Start low on pointed jug, climb up through the "embryo" and topout through the thin seam.

The pg13 grade on this is unnecessary. The landing on Your Body is a Wonderland is worse lol. without giving too much beta away... wear pants or working through the embryo could get a little painful. Nov 1, 2016

Hey Kristoffer, I could see how you think that way. As for me, it has spit me off a few times and I have literally slid all the way down that hill. The "PG 13" is merely to catch peoples attention and make sure they are on their toes while spotting. Glad you enjoyed the problem! Nov 12, 2015
