Location 

Located just uphill of the Anomaly Boulder on a just past vertical boulder. This problem is right in the middle of this wall. To descend, jump from this boulder to the one your back faces when starting the problem or try and find a safer way.

Description 

Start on two underclings in the middle of the vertical face. Go straight up on cool edges and pinches to a big jump at the top. I think this is the best V4 at Old Baldy.

Protection 

Pads and spotter

I suspect that one of the original underclings for the start has since broke off. The problems goes very smooth starting on the chalked crimp and sidepull in the middle of the boulder and goes straight up, same finish. Felt V3ish

Probably V3/4 i think. I've seen alot of climbers not get this one right away. I was on it 3 days ago and it looked normal?

Mike, you would know better than I would... I guess I wasn't sure where to start. So perhaps I just found an easier, but still fun alternative start.
