Located in the middle of the south face, between Platypus (V0) on the left and The Clutch (V0-) on the right, at a distinctive hueco. You'll also notice a large boulder set back from the base - postion a spotter on this to push you off left should you pitch from up high.

Grab the rounded edge of the hueco, make some steep moves as you pull into the hole and get stood up. Now the fun bit as you work slightly left and out of the hueco with handholds that get more sloping the higher you get as the bulging wall pushes your lower body out. Ignore the boulder below, get the balance right and top out. Note: It's possible to step off the problem midway onto the boulder below but at a certain point you're committed, although you can also traverse off right to finish on The Clutch.

This is a good problem, but one best appreciated by those not bouldering at or near their limit on this.


pad, spotters
