Start at the large sloping shelf while sitting on the rock behind the boulder. Make long moves up the face to less than positive holds. Paddle up onto the slab on flat holds then move right to descend.

I always called this one Death Metal because of the bad landing and to go along with the theme of the area. Very fun problem!
