Description 

Awesomely slabby.

Start in the middle of the face on good holds and style your way through some small crimps and footholds before a somewhat off-balance move to a big edge. Top out straight above.

It's probably best to do this when it's dry; I got a bit sketched out after grabbing the good edge and finding it to be completely soaked with water along with the slopers on the topout. After much hesitation and one near slip I managed to top it out, but it was way more exciting than I had anticipated

Location 

On the slab, in the main area of the Carnivals. Just to the right of the warmup boulder.

Protection 

A couple of big pads and a spotter

Great problem. Definitely not a 4.

I agree with Mike. Felt V1 for someone my height (5'11"), but would be harder for a shorter person. I asked someone about the grade there and he said "it's because of the danger", which was weird to me. Fun problem though!
