Description 

Fun arete problem. From a sit start, use the jug start at the bottom left portion of the Highball Boulder. Hit the positive sloper-edge, and then move into a series of pinches and crimps before moving the 2 consecutive small jugs near the top. Crux is finding the feet to be able to smear and step off throughout the sequence. ***You can bail out before the top out by traversing to the left just before the final jug; however, this route becomes a V1-2 if you do so.***
Another note, the landing has a large rock at the base; carry AT LEAST 3 pads to safely climb this route especially if you're not familiar with it.

Location 

15-20 seconds down the trail from the parking lot, located on the left hand side.

Protection 

Minimum 3 pads
