Description 

"Thews: Muscles and tendons perceived as generating such strength."

A personal favorite:
"Thews" stand-starts on the lowest section of a geometric arete bulge, with feet on a bad bottom rail. left hand on the "jigsaw piece" flake, right hand pinch crimping on the geometric arete.
go up through big moves to crimps/pinches to gain the slopey and exposed top out. top out is above the start and is challenging.

...V5 for locals...

Location 

The middle bulge-arete on the front face of the Thews Boulder
