The big opening move up to the sloping lip, photo ...

Description 

From the crack move up to slopers at the lip. Trend left till your hands are on the slab and your feet are below. Make a commitling move up to a shallow scoop and press out the mantle, thigh scum useful.

The rock on this problem is pretty flawless. It is just a shame that there are not a couple more moves before the mantle.

Location 

This problem starts at the lower left end of the traversing crack and climbs up and left onto the slick slab above. Seems like it is the south arete of the boulder that you start just to the left off from the first good hold in the crack.

Protection 

Pad and spotter, you really want someone to keep you from slapping back into the boulder behind this problem, it probably is not a concern untill you are moving to the shallow scoop.
