This route starts on the right end of the wall on some good holes and follows up and left on a seam that ends at a hueco 15 feet up. From here, bust right on low 5.10 climbing, and don't fall.

This doesn't sound like The Contemplation I know. The one I know is the same as Consideration, only using other hands. My foggy memory can't tell me which one does the initial throw with the right or left, but one goes right to the first edge, the other route goes left hand (horrible, crossed up start) to the first edge. Then the crimp with the other hand, and then the throw to the rail atop the right edge of the boulder.

"The Contemplation" is a committing problem that starts on the same holds as "The Moderate Bulge" and "The Consideration." The Contemplation goes up the pockets, then steers left up the arching bulge to a good hold below the headwall. From there pull the high bulge and go to the top ... hopefully without falling.

Adam, the problem you are thinking of is Reverse Consideration, a problem which uses the same holds as The Consideration but requires a huge crossover to the small rail with your left hand when your right hand is in the pocket 8 feet up.

Falling would be very bad indeed.
