Hyperbole. Left side of the arete and immediately ...

Description 

3 moves, but man-o-man are those moves technical.

On the left side of the parking lot problem is "Hyperbole." It chipped in early 2015, making the grade much harder than originally thought.

Stand start on extremely thin, sharp, crimper edges, with glassy feet. Grab an almost non-existent left hand 3-finger crimp, also heinously sharp, get high feet and throw for the decent top out.

Originally thought of as V4, the starting holds and intermediate left hand crimp, chipped.

Location 

Beech cliff parking lot.

Protection 

Pads. Short and sweet, but definitely well protected and a low-ball.

Why is it PG13?

The landing isn't scary or dangerous aside from the usual risks involved with climbing, hence the PG13 rating.

That is as G-rated a boulder problem as you can get...

I assume you've climbed it then, right?

Edited to say: There is no G rated option on mountain project.

Opus, you can leave it blank.

IMO PG13 should be for boulders 15' or higher with particularly poor landing areas. R - 20', x - 30'
