One of the very best at the Lab!

This problem is both bold and beautiful. Stand start (could go from the sit, but the sit start isn't as fun and doesn't add to the difficulty) with a left hand underclinging and iron edge under the bulge, and a right hand on the sloper/chunk (both mid-arĂȘte). Climb directly up the tall arĂȘte using thin crimps and a sloper/pinch to compress your way up the proud arete to the high, obvious jug.

From the obvious protruding jug, mantle up making use of rails. Once mantled over that section and standing, use the overhead holds and the higher adjacent boulder to stem up. A higher block with huge iron jug ripples also assists this.

Walk over the top of the next boulder, and drop down through the tunnel/cave/passageway to walk out of the slot.
