Digging in that heel to get started

Description 

One of my favorite problems. Start with your left hand on a slopey rail under a small roof and your right hand on a sidepull sloper. Put your feet on and throw that right heel up to your right hand. Dig that heel in and move/slap your way up and left on the lip around the arete to some pockets. You can finish by continuing to traverse left or up the slopey arete with a hard top out. I've never done the left finish, I always go up the arete which adds a second crux and puts it as an easy v6 to me.

Location 

The first summit boulder. Starts in the little alcove (see pic).

Start sitting with hands spread wide on opposing slopers and left foot on good low ledge. Pull on, hook a right heel near your hand and then traverse several moves left to point of prow. To finish climb up and RIGHT following low angle arete/lip to top of boulder. [Variation: Finish left manteling at start of Table Traverse. #8 on the beta photo

The left exit with a heel hook and a mantle feels way more natural and fun ( also easier )
