Description 

This is a nice variation to The Wedgie / The CubeProblem. SDS on the northeast aerate, trend up and right til gaining the left hand crimp for Wedgie, and continue the same as you would finish the Wedgie problem. The crux for me was holding the crossover to gain the left hand Wedgie crimp. I'm sure this has been done many times and combines moves from other problems, but it is super fun and more than doubles the moves for Wedgie.

Location 

Climb the north face of the Cube Boulder starting on some tufa sidepulls on the northeast arete.

Protection 

A pad and spotter to keep you out of the small tree.

Starting on the middle tufa adds another fun move. This climb is absolutely loaded with heel and toe hooks. Way better than Wedgie!
