Description 

Climb juggy patina plates and edges up a bulging face to about two-thirds height where the rock changes color and the holds get much smaller and worse. Work your feet up as high as possible as you hold onto sloping grains and aim for a visible depression at the lip. Downclimb off the backside.

Location 

Center of the west face of the boulder.

Protection 

Pads, spotter
