Description 

When looking at the main faces of the two large, steep boulders this is on the right-most boulder, to the left side of the face to left arête. Find the low, long, deeply in-cut rail. Sit start below this rail on two slightly diagonal crimps. Pop up to the higher, deep, long, in-cut rail and follow holds up and slightly right past small holds and a good (more left facing) diagonal in-cut. Follow higher crimps direct to the slopey lip left of the apex to top out.

-Note- this problem's namesake came from the initial exploration of this climb. The first and several other holds on this line had a flakey surface layer that seemed horribly unsuited for climbing, unusual for the rest of the boulder's surface. After trying and breaking what I thought were several key holds, I found that there were solid, sculpted in-cut crimps hidden under the loose surface crust. Born of a Broken Hold.
