Bumping up to the money hold.

Description 

I hope you brought your slab skills. The crux comes early after you get a high right foot and bump your left to a face hold (very small) before shooting for a high money hold. After this move, the route mellows out but still has around 8-10 feet of fun climbing to a clean topout.

Also, I am not 100% sure I was the first person to put up the line. If someone knows who is, just let me know, and I can correct it. The rating is also variable. Get out there, and tell me what you all think.

Location 

This is on the north-facing boulder in the gully. Start with a right hand crimp with a thumb catch in a natural pocket and your left hand on an opposing crimp.

Protection 

A pad works, but you will probably cheesegrate if you slip on the crux.

Not trying to be a jerk, but unless it's V double-digits or close, there really aren't any FAs at Rotary. Bouldering started here in the '50s, and you can count on every piece of rock in the area having already been climbed, even if it wasn't named or recorded. I think it's great to get problems on here so people can get out there and check them out, and I appreciate you asking for info/history in the description. Climb on!
