Description 

Disappointing boulder problem to start revolving around a shallow left hand pocket, a bad 3-finger right hand crimp, and a drilled left mono full of mud and ferns. Dyno to the lip off the mono and the crimp with really high feet. Or don't because you don't want to explode your tendons. Rest of the route easier on solid rock. Doesn't get climbed much because of the silly injury potential. Apparently if you boulder V14 you can dyno from the start holds to the jug over the lip and skip the bad holds.

Location 

Next route to the right of dragonfly, so 2 routes to the right of Deflower Power, which is basically the first route on the insect wall.

Protection 

4 bolts, 1 directional.

Hard for the grade, no need to dyno over the lip, just lock off on the mono and craaank up. This is a 13b if the mono is not bone dry (spoiler alert, it's basically never dry).
