Description 

This problem was 6 months work for me, so I'm definitely emotionally attached to it, even if other folks aren't.

This problem starts on the right/center side of the Bat Cave on a HUGE jug. From there, match a heel, and move up some positive holds and out the roof to a positive rail. From there, match on some crimps, and make a big move to the obvious jug. I had to do this in a very dynamic way, but I've seen someone static it as well. From there, make a few easy moves before a big move to the sloping crimp below the iron flake. Top out...it's not as easy as I thought it would be.

Location 

There's an obvious downclimb on the backside of the boulder.

Protection 

Pads and spotters. The landing is good, but if you miss the swing, you could tumble down the hill.

What a great problem, Brad! The best line at Late Bloomer, IMHO.

Just in case you didn't get enough of that spot. I was up there last week and noticed an untouched line that climbs about 15-20 yards left of this one. It looks equally impressive.
