Description 

Stand start the two lowest crimps in the diagonal seam. Bump up to a decent crimp and get ready and toss up to the slopers at the lip. Pick some feet and go for the crimps up and left. Throw a heel up and top out.

There is a low start on a left hand crimp and a sharp right hand crimp throwing up to the rail that has been done.

Location 

On the boulder above and a little left of Rollercoaster and Zipper.

Protection 

Pads and spotter

The first ascent was by Michael Stewart aka Mac Daddy circa 2000-2002, he called it V3 if I remember correctly. There was a low start done the very strong lady of the old norope.com site (Julie?) around 2004, at V7. I think the lower start is closer to V6, that was when I did it just after. Foot holds on this crispy face may have broken in the time since.
