This was formerly the "Cave Project". All the hand hold are decent, but the feet and body position are strange. Start at the bottom right of the face on a sharp, but good crimp rail. Paste your feet and surf out left to a slopey rail. Heel hook your hand and compress into a slopey, right-facing rail with your right hand. Slap your left foot up and do a pretty hard move up and right to another decent sloping rail. Do some magic footwork to get your right foot up on a incut foot. Then surf out left to a mediocre undercling. Walk your feet through, and set up for the crux. Get a drop knee on a big slopey rail and a HORRIBLE smear with the left. Twist your face into the wall and do a huge cross to precarious looking undercling pinch flake. While it looks scary, its solid. If you get here, paste your feet on some eh feet, and stand up really high to grab a hard-to-see edge with your left hand. Then, move out right to a horn feature to top out. Hard if you're short, slightly less heinous if you're tall like me (I'm 6 foot 1).
As you are walking to Devils Den, you will see a large cluster of tall boulders on the left for far after you leave Boulder Natural. This climb is located in the right-most corridor.
