Description 

This short, powerful problem is fun and pretty addictive. Begin in front of the jagged splitter crack on the Big Rock's north-facing side (toward the swamp). This climb goes up the right-side arete. Use the obvious flat jug on the base of the arete as a sit start hold. Your 1st left foot is across the crack/gap and the 1st right foot is on the face you'll be climbing. For this route to be a V1 layback, use only the left edge of the arete for hands while keeping feet solely on the main boulder face off of arete/corner holds. Arete footholds while temping here, can throw your balance off and toss you into a set of jagged offwidth jaws. Ouch. Flagging a foot across the gap can be helpful at times though. After pulling through a pinchy sit start sequence, the layback begins, making for solid, almost relaxed climbing up the boulder's side to a great topout hold - ends on a flat jug near the top. Enjoy!

Location 

North Side of the big glacial boulder.

Protection 

One pad should do it. A spotter won't hurt your chances either.
