Description 

This route is a fun route that shouldn't be passed up. Start with your left hand on a one-two finger slot ( painful). Your right goes on a small crimpy Sloper (roughly the size of a credit card as Willy put it) right foot goes on a nice big incut. Deep breath and get ready for some bruising on the left hand fingers. Pull up stick the good Sloper with your right. You will see a large crystal that your left hand moves up to. From here the problem has a few Slopey moves that are easy to the top. I felt solid V3 easy V4 but have heard from people they felt V4. Descend off the back of boulder.

Location 

Third route when going east to west or facing boulder. From Frogonious this is the next "Obvious" line.

Protection 

Pad one is fine good landing.

the hard part is not the credit card or the two finger crystal starting holds, but going from the first sloper to the second. it's a big throw with nothing for feet, i tried to do a go-go gadget extend-a-arm but i still came up short. the starting move is V4 by itself. get on it.
