Another quality addition to the lower graded problems at Font, this one featuring a sloper crux topout straight out of HP40. Start with a nice choice of holds around chest high and a squat start. there are many options for start holds and feet, but I preferred two opposing sidepull jugs. the rock is better than it looks. make a move or two or three to get a meathook on a sloper jug above the break, then launch into some sloper slapping and high stepping until you can reach a left side pull sloper that enables the topout. The problem has a large amount of great foot options, which is what keeps the grade low. with worse feet, this would be an excellent moderate tech problem, but it sits as a super fun low-grade sloper problem.
When standing at the main campsite and fire ring (last one before the corridor with rings of Uranus), face down hill. This problem is on the downhill side of the first big boulder you see (the boulder is almost on the trail). follow the boulder around and down hill, the problem is on the most downhill point. the start holds are just to the left of a large tree that is growing into the rock.
