Description 

Brute force your way through an extremely difficult (for 12b) move at the beginning, gallivant up some massive jugs, then enjoy what would be a classic boulder problem if it were at the bottom rather than the top of Rumbling Bald.

Location 

Left of the huge roof you first walk up to

Protection 

3 bolts, one fixed wire

Despite the chossy starting hold, this is a great steep sport climb for Rumbling Bald.

Crank a hard move right off the bat (V3 or 4?) and climb big holds interspersed with crimps, culminating in a redpoint crux right before the mega finishing holds. Description does the quality of the top boulder problem due justice.

Fixed nut is in good condition as of today.
