Description 

The climb starts on two obvious holds, left and on a good white granite 3 finger full pad mini jug, and the right hand is on a slopey divot. With a high left foot you lock off and throw with your left hand to a crimp rail. Match the crimp rail and move up the face using a good obvious under cling and another obvious crimp. Pull the last moves using potential side pulls, a slopey rail, or a crimp to get to the top. *note, the true line goes straight up the face with the arête off. With the arête on the upper section of the climb will be a bit easier, especially if you're short.

Location 

Absent Minded is on the vertical face, facing the creek, on the first larger boulder after doing the class four scramble at the end of the approach.Its right before the first huge boulder, with no climbs on it. Once you shimmy down the small shoot on the approach, walk about 20 yards down stream following the trail and The "Absent Minded" boulder should be in sight. The boulder is literally right beside the creek. There are two Huge over hung faces (25 feet) on separate boulders in the main area. If you hit either one you've gone to far. From the first Huge over hung boulder, you can see "Absent Minded".
