to sloper...

Description 

Start on crimps (generally chalked), with a reachy move once you're established off the ground. Climb up to slopers, and grovel up to the horizontal hand crack. Awkward moving up and left to the topout, as there's a boulder in the crack you have to avoid.
The V4 grade is just a guess.

Location 

This problem is in a little hidden corridor just to the east of Driftwood and the Pizza crack. Get up onto the podium at the base of those problems, and look to your left as you face the rock. You have to scramble over a little boulder to get into the corridor, and the problem is immediately on your right (the south wall of the corridor).
This problem is featured in the following exciting short film on You Tube:

Pad, spotters.

I liked traversing all scrunched up under that little roof after pulling the lip! Fun stuff.

There is also a no-hands problem or two on the steep slab on the left side of the corridor. Exciting!
