Description 

The problem starts with the same crack as Sweet Nectar, but instead of following the crack out north, climb west along the cave wall.

Start with a left hand jam and a right jug. Move to the next jug, with big crescent moon feet, then negotiate the thin hands crack, and continue up on jugs and minimal feet until you top out to the right to a big handcrack near the start of Low Hanging Melons. Crack technique makes this much easier, but brute force can be used as well.

This has most definitely been done before, it is being added so that it can be enjoyed in its own right. If you know the original name or first ascentionist, let me know and I'll update accordingly.

Location 

This problem is in the Arrowhead Arete area between Sweet Nectar and Low Hanging Melons. The problem starts down in a cave.

Protection 

1 crashpad is sufficient, put down in the cave. Once you get up to the first jug after the crack, you'll be able to step back onto the nearby rock.
