Turning over into a mantle.

Description 

Stand start with right on a crimpy/slopey ledge and left compressed around the arete. Move up to a jug, then catch the arete high near the top. Pull/push up and top out over the horn on the top of the boulder.

Location 

This is on the north side of the Eye of Providence Boulder i.e. the triangular/pyramid boulder you can easily see from the west Riggs' Hill parking area.

Protection 

A pad.

This might be essentially the same line as Eye of Providence North. If so, this problem should be removed; however, if that is the case, Eye of Providence North's description is too sparse to really identify the line and someone should put up a beta photo or something.

I'm under the impression Eye of Providence North climbs the huge flake on the right side of the north face. The arete variation steers you to the left of the flake, so you don't use it.

The North V1 sit starts below the central flake with a sort of double knee-bar and goes straight up. The left arete is also a good line.

Thanks for clarifying. I def didn't do any knee-barring. Sounds fun. I'll have to give it a try next time I'm out.
