Small Powerful tension problem. Only a few moves long but each one makes you think. Not sure on grade if your short it will be harder tall it could be alot easier. Start with you feet matched on the obvious foot hold. Your right hand goes into a small pocket hole. Your left on the crystal rail about chest height. Start low and move up bumping your right off tiny micros and your left follows up the small shallow seam. Hitting 2 decent small crimps to adjust on. Throw to the point on the lip and there is a spot for a right heel to be thrown up as a heel hook to finish off the mantle. The Sit to this would be very hard! Possible if you can start off very micro crimps and crystals. Likely V10/12 depending on how low and right you choose. Project for the future!!!
This is on the east facing side of boulder. The trail up to emancipation runs by this block.
