Description 

(No stemming on this route) The crux of this route is absolutely Hugs from thugs (V2+). After the solid jugs and slabby footwork of the problem, the sharp handholds and balancing footwork is rough to get used to. Be conservative on the first two sides and spend your energy on the third face, which is a relatively minor overhang but drains your strength quite quickly.

Start this problem with your back to the cliff at the left side of the largest boulder. There is a large platform to start on, move left around the boulder to take advantage of the angle of the holds. Eventually some hero will climb against the grain and give us a new problem.

Location 

This route starts on the left hand side (with your back to the cliff) of the largest of the three boulders.

Protection 

Being a sweet, sweet boulder there's no protection to speak of. Except for the tip of an old bolt that's exposed from a flake that chipped off the outside edge of the boulder when it fell.
