BETA PHOTO: Making the first move on Big Galoot.

Description 

Stand start with hands matched on the jug. From there, reach a right hand edge, place a high right heel, then begin traversing left through an edge to reach a mini-shelf, work through some sloper-edges to gain a good hueco-like feature on the face, and continue up the remainder to reach an easy mantel.

A sit start can be added to the problem as well. It adds two moves that are maybe V5ish in difficulty. The movement involved is quite good, but I didn't have the endurance to finish the problem.

Location 

It climbs the north face of Exoplanet and uses the same finish as Ideometer Effect.

Protection 

A pair of pads. This has a great landing, but it covers some ground.
