Description 

The obvious overhanging problem facing the Orb before the boulder curves around to the right (towards the overhanging tree). Starts on the bottom right side of the overhang on a jug then works straight up over the roof. Then throw to some decent slopers to top out.

Location 

Located on the big boulder behind the Orb problem. This is the problem to the left of Soap on a Rope around the corner.

Protection 

Crash pad.

Kurk the Roach is actually not the problem you are referring to. It is to the left of this problem you describe. Comes out a roof on edges to a sloping pinch, then moves through more slopers and a really cool soft ball-like hold at the top.
