Description

This is to the best of my knowledge the longest boulder problem in the notch at 30 moves in total.

Walk uphill from the Biscuit Boulder to the obvious wall above. This wall has problems like The Turning Worm, Who Gets the Chicken, as well as newer problems like Set the Controls and Preacher.

When you see the wall walk along the base around the corner to an obvious undercling that makes the first (sit start) move. From there traverse right to left around the corner using a series of undercling and edge holds until you can gain the obvious large off width crack that forms the top out exit.

This may have been first done by Jon Tome (Tome's Roof) but I think this is the first send from the far right. Named in part after my youngest daughter who despite being only a few miles away is a long way from home.

Location

Walk uphill around the right side of biscuit boulder to gain the uphill plateau and the large 30 foot or so high wall. Follow the wall around to the far right side until you see an obvious undercling move formed by a crack.
