From a sit on the right arête of the Bulbous boulder, left hand on obvious juggy sidepull, and right on a low decent sidepull slot. Pull through the center of the roof and join Bulbous to finish.


3 pads is nice or you could have a buddy move them.

Finished this one up last night. Very fun problem and worth trying along with Bulbous. Credit to Ian for figuring out the sequence as I know a number of people tried this without success prior to him doing it.

As for the grade, on point with other V8's at the lake. Certainly not as hard as Alpine Club or Fearful Symmetry and harder than Fat pants, Tunder Tighs and Power Bottom. Felt slightly harder/lower percentage than bulbous.
