Description

This classic boulder problem climbs great rock out a steep overhanging on slightly incut crimps. Begin sitting with two large, undercling knobs. Work your way rightward and up through a variety of crimps to a challenging move to a good pinch. From here, continue on easier ground to the moderate topout.

A low start "Meet Your Maker", V9/10 (FA: Jamie Emerson), has been done adding some steep moves on good holds.

Location

In the center of Wasp canyon, it is the overhanging chalked boulder just behind Starlight Buttress.

Protection

Several pads, the landing has been built up, eliminating much of the scariness.
