Description 

Sit start with hands on opposite sides of the large block, right on a good edge and left in the crack. Pull up and establish on the two triangular peaks at the top of the block. Crux is getting the right hand pinch up on the arete and hiking the right foot high in order to get a really good (no hands needed) knee bar. From here it isnt too hard to get a good but sharp left hand crimp on the face and finish with a big move up to the juggy top edge of the arete. Easy top out to the left.

Location 

Quite a bit (10ft?) left of Firecracker Crimps almost at the left end of the main cliff band. The problem is characterized by the large arete/prow.

Protection 

a pad and a spotter

My friend Evan was able to send this last year and I came pretty close but kept slipping off on the crux. I'm sure it had been done back in the day being a plum but the name really fits. High on my list the next time I go back. There are also a couple easier problems to the left which fit in well as warmups (V0/1) with the Roadside Warmup just below.
