Committing to the topout

Description 

Stand/Squat start in an awesome corridor down from "Crazy Game of Poker". Follow the only pure holds all the way up and out of the corridor WITHOUT touching the rock behind you for the full value! If you "DAB" the top out by touching the rock behind you, its like the rock has your spot, but makes it a little easier! Another CLASS-SICK Problem for the already cool Lower Matrix Area, F.A.'ed by John Carriere!

Protection 

Just need a Crash Pad, and follow the path of the really cool holds up both sides of the arete!

I am going to be completely honest here, Ben. I climbed this problem in the fall of 2000. And many other persons after did this climb. I am not sure if your post is tongue in cheek, but seriously, did you believe you had made a first ascent? Close but no cigar, my good man. I really am not trying to be mean, but this was an old classic problem. I think we called it Kryptonite. Almost all of the obvious boulders had been climbed between 1998 and 2003, and this is most certainly one of them. Not to burst your bubble dude. Have fun out there!
