Description 

This is a nice problem on the mossy north face of the Medicine Man. It could use some more traffic to clean up. When I did it, I had to brush off the holds as I went.

Start standing on a small boulder near the center of the face. Mantle onto a little shelf and then traverse left on thin edges to a hole. The first move of the traverse is scary because the rock is below you, but after that you get out over a clear landing. From the hole climb straight up to an easy topout.

I think the easiest way down is to downclimb the northwest arete, then at the ledge, traverse left a short ways and then continue downclimbing. It's also possible to downclimb a very high corner on the south side of the boulder, or butt-scoot across a fallen tree branch which is resting on the north side of the boulder.
