Dobbe sticking the throw.

Description 

Start left on sloper and traverse right to gain corner. A mix of power and technique get you to the top on this one.
A direct line out the roof would be really hard.
Has anyone been on this before? It's obvious from the base of the talus field.

Location 

This boulder sits at the top left side of talus field about 40ft east of Get Up Stand Up project.

Fun line. It's weird how you feel like you are about to dab at all times but never actually come that close to doing so.

I think this falls in line difficulty-wise with the other 4's at the lake (double elephant, smooth operator, etc). And like Brian said, somehow that boulder doesn't really come in to play when you're climbing.

Glad you guys liked it. Dobbe came up with some slick beta that I thought made it a little easier too.
