This is how we were starting the V2 variation. Ton...


Start on the far right side of the boulder on big holds (obvious start holds). Throw up your heal and move left, topping out on the left arete. Pumpy.


Located directly below Brinton's Buttress. Move down through the talus until you come upon a large overhanging boulder with a huge roof fist crack (this is the project). Look right and you'll see the Midget boulder.


Good landing. A few pads.

This is really a fun line. Lots of good movement. We originally started it in the middle and is now a great V2 variation (I'll post a pic of the start), but it felt natural to move the climb right and start there.
