Stand start on the round knob at foot level and move up into pockets while matching hands on the palm smear at head height or a little higher (I'm tall so it might be a little above your head if you're of average height). There are two really great hidden plate holds that are super fun to find so I won't spray beta. You'll just have to search to find them. Pull on the plates until you top out in the moss.

Spotter and pad. The down climb is pretty gnarly and involves hopping across a crack between boulders at the back of the problem and then sliding/surfing down this wet tree trunk to pass between boulders back to the front of the problem. The downclimb was way more dangerous than the actual boulder problem.
