While the true difficulty of this highball is likely more of a V1, it is full value in every way, with the last move being the crux. Sit start at the bottom jug on the center of the gorgeous face. Follow sculpted in-cut rail jugs, pockets, and long, large crimps to higher jug rails. At the top, near 20ft, get high feet and lock off the last high rail to bump past a higher thin crimp to grab the flat top. Match the top lip and bump back to the deep in-cut. Get a high left foot and press over to scramble off left.

PADS. There are two scary blocks on either side of the flat landing that should be protected as well.
