This seldom done toprope problem climbs the southeast corner of a large blocky boulder located in front of Lost Orbit's West Face, very near the climb Bear Essence.

Increasingly difficult moves lead to the crux near the top of the route and finally a good jug at the very top. This might be a good highball boulder problem for those so inclined.

Scramble up the opposite side of the boulder to access the 2 bolt anchor atop the route.
