Description 

Another Rio Problem, and in this case, it's another classic. Dynamic movement up a crimpy bulge with technical feet. Start low with two good crimps and a crappy right foot. Toss up right (crux) to a good incut and bring your left hand up to the other hold on the left. Pull out right to a crimp, then work your way over the bulge using a left hand gaston and the slopey arete on the right. Once you reach the jugs, finish up to the top.

Location 

Roughly 10-12 minutes down the Fundy Trail from the Blair parking area is a boulder called the Fundy boulder or the Fisherman boulder. This climbs the overhanging face opposite the trail. Downclimb the V1 warmup to the left.

Protection 

Pads, maybe a spotter

Really a fantastic problem, very much worth the walk. There is some short person beta that I found for the first move, and the slap to the fin felt like the crux.
