Description 

One of the best v7's at Haycock. Definitely worth adventuring down the Caves Trail to find.

This problem (along with the few variations and The Plum) is somewhat tucked away in a cave type formation.

SDS on the hold that is continually chalked. Move right to the big undercling, then up the nice crimps on the face. Hit the arete and climb up and over.

Word of caution, the bottom of this climb is always always wet.

Location 

When coming down the Caves Trail from the Top Rocks side, this cave type formation will be on your right. Once the trail converts to some talus, keep an eye out for this formation.

this problem is always wet. literally, always. i have gone after 4 days of no rain (which is rare enough on the east coast) and the start hold was still damp. my friend and I are going to clean out the crack that holds dirt and detritus. with nothing to hold moisture, the boulder should have some dry days and will therefore be one of the best in the area...right now i'd give it 1 star just due to the fact that I've never been able to try it dry.
