Depileated (V1) starts low on the left.

Description 

This is a low ball traverse starting down low on the left side of the ugly rearend of the boulder. It is sort of one and half star problem but a decent warmup on unusual holds. It was named after a Pileated Woodpecker that was flying around overhead when I climbed it.

Start on good slopers with body tucked into to low overhang, then traverse right using generally good holds. Go as far as you can, but I matched at a good sharp jug and threw up and right for a topout hold.

Location 

It is on far left (actually around the corner) is facing the back side of the boulder.

Start on good slopers with body tucked into to low overhang, then traverse right using generally good holds. Go as far as you can, but I matched at a good sharp jug and threw up and right for a topout hold.

Walk off easily.

Protection 

Pretty much low ball climb. Use a pad so you don't get too dirty.
