Moving through the crux on sharp pockets.

Description 

This problem climbs through the obvious overhang/bulge on the distance boulder at the Fountain Bleu area. This boulder is located directly down the hill from the main cluster of boulders (cave direct, fountain lip traverse, stage boulder). Start sitting on a slopey dish/edge and make a move up to a sharp/painful two finger pocket. Moving passed this pocket is the crux. Finish on Distance Overhang, moving straight up.
