Another angle of sticking the gaston

Description 

High quality moves with an awkward starting position.

Sit start with left hand on a good edge and right hand on a good knob with you feet awkwardly behind the rock you are sitting on. Make a big move up and right to an edge. Work your feet around and come left hand into a good gaston followed by a couple balance moves on crimp to a jug at the top.

Location 

Just left of 'Troubadour"

Protection 

Pads, and not falling on the first couple moves over the weird landing.

The moves on this boulder are quite good, with bullet hard rock. The awkwardness of the boulder at the start does take away from it a bit, but if you can get past that you will enjoy this climb a lot.
