BETA PHOTO: Bottle of Rum (yellow) Old Ironsides (red)

Description 

From The Tim Kemple Guidebook. Sit start on very small crimp edges, dig in on a good foot (or two if you can), and fire straight up to the horizontal crack. After the horizontal move right and go up to top out.

Location 

If looking at the boulder from the side closest to the log bench- this problem starts on the far right end of the boulder, on two low sloper-crimps

Protection 

Pad and a spotter if feeling uncomfortable on the top out.

Is the start of this problem almost immediately left of the start of The Low Traverse? If so, it is a pretty good problem. Top out looks hard form the ground but it is not, just a bit high.

I've done a cool variation of this problem that avoids the two horizontal cracks (for hands and feet). Really fun, even though it's contrived...
