Sit start and fire up powerful and thin moves with precise feet on the slightly chalked up face. I still haven't sent so I can't tell you where the crux is.

Alternatively, sit start but use the arete on the left. Downgrades the route to about V1 (which could be good or bad depending on what your up for) but add a star for the cool heelhooking potential.


Short overhanging boulder fifteen feet below and climber's left of the lower buttress.

Doing this the "right" way (ie, finishing at the very top point of the boulder without using either arete) is quite hard, maybe harder than V5. It's also super sharp and generally a terrible problem. But if you're really hard up for bouldering, I guess it's worth doing.
