This stunning problem would get 4 stars if the left "Katana crimp" wasn't as heinous. If you dont mind a sharp iron edge, this line is excellent.

On the rightmost inside corner locate the downward pointing flake feature and match the opposite facing underclings (left side is great and right side is thin) to stand start.

Gain the small pinch above, work left to match the better undercling and lock off the heinous iron flake above.

Reach back to the right, thin crimp with a high right foot. Move directly up to a long diagonal. Hit the ramp and compress the ramp and additional diagonals higher on the face.

Climb the block direct to the highest apex to top out.




many pads and at least one spotter
