Description 

The problem climbs bullet stone over a perfect landing via enjoyable movement.

Sit start matched on the horizontal rail. From there, traverse left along the rail to a great sidepull, mantel with the right hand, achieve a high right foot, use a double-dimple right hand undercling, position the feet, make a committing move to the lip, reel in the barn door, and mantel on top.

Is it an eliminate? I'm not sure. I first thought that the feature used on What Will They Think would have to be intentionally avoided, but the problem climbed naturally without doing so. Bottom line, it didn't feel forced.

Location 

It climbs the east face of Regal Rock.

Protection 

A pad or two. The landing is perfect though.
