Description

Start on a prominent flake with many options for feet. Move straight up through a cluster of holds (including a pinch, crimps, and an undercling) avoiding the good holds further to the right. Aim for the jug directly above this cluster that seems so close, and yet...

The first three ascents of this problem were all done in very different styles, so play around with different beta on the various holds until something clicks for you. Surprisingly all versions feel about V5.

Since the first few ascents one or two footholds have broken/crumbled making this problem more challenging. I've tried two of the three betas I know of and both were somewhat harder, I'm assuming the undercling beta (used for the FA) is similarly changed.

Location

Starts on the prominent flake to the left of Westward Ho! on the West Nile Boulder.
As this problem is on the swamp facing side of the boulder it may be largely inaccessible once the snow melts and the water level rises.

Protection

A pad or two, the landing is somewhat uneven.
