Description 

This problem is a true a classic. The height is borderline petrifying, the moves are really fun and unique and the aesthetics of the line are stunning. Start move is far right in the low crack. Use a small crimp for the right hand, up and right of the crack. From here, use the amazing undercling and go up. The top is the crux and is height dependent. Maybe goes at a V6 for the shorter wing span.

Location 

South face of Vasa Boulder

Protection 

Pads and some good spotters.
