Description 

Start at two beginning arrows (see the 1st photo) for hand holds, get a left toe on a notch hold next to your left hand. Make a big bump to a decent crimp above where purple star is, match on that, then bump to slopers near top. Traverse left towards green star, then mantel above. The mantel is slopey, and footing is steep. The topout is uncomfortable at first, but once you figure it out, it is solid.

Location 

It is on the back side of the boulder.

This rock until recently has been submerged In water on backside making it hard to start any route down low. This year the water level has receded exposing new route and potential for more. This is a fun climb worth checking out if you are looking for boulder locations on The Cape.
