Description 

Sit start this high ball just inside the mouth of a low roof cave. Work up for a match on the large corner hold. Pull some magic with your feel and go far right before pulling up the seam. If your fingers are narrow and or you are better than I at jamming this section could go easy for you. Continue up to where the rock come out just a bit and work left and up for what looks like an easy last half. Know your limits and the art of the down climb, no room for error.

(See photos for exclusion)

Projecting and piecing sections together on this problem is quite a treat as the large tree just 2 feet away from the rock face makes for a great resting/cheating post ;)

May be possible to start way inside the cave following the right wall seams out adding another 10-15' of length upping the difficulty and creating a new problem.

Location 

Easiest approach is from the Western side of the crag. Come down around the Western trail, follow the main wall to the left, around the cave/tunnel and up left around some boulders. There is a hole and a 15 foot deep cave underneath the wall here. Sit start just at the mouth just inside the cave.

Protection 

2 crash pads for top out and a spotter. The landing could be better and by "could be better' I mean it is pretty terrible. This could be top roped
