For the FA, I continued traversing the lip all the way over to the horizontal slot (seen in the far left side of the photos) before mantling up and over.

Figured you would comment Greg! I know the actual line goes over more. I think he tried bailing a little earlier which didn't make it any easier.

Hey Greg not to go off topic here. There is a boulder that sits almost parallel with the cheat and north nostril cave. If your facing the cheat this block sits alone up by a slab wall to your right. Almost across the "valley" from
Hidden agenda. It sits right on the cliff. One? Really good scrubbed problem that is a fun warm up! Same with the slab wall to its right when facing this unknown block. Has kind of a huge cavity / hue I feature at its base. You throw up to a small crimp feature with your right I believe and then transition to a hold on the arête above the cavity/hueco. Fun gym climb. Any idea??

I think I know the exact boulder you're talking about, but I don't know the problem… If I'm thinking of the right one, it didn't look like "warm up" material :) I remember looking at it several times, but could never see any holds above the cavity. Does it kind of have a weird landing? My memory is a bit foggy on this one...
