There are indications this has been climbed in the past. The critical foothold for the start move has begun the slow process of eventually coming off, but for now it is good to go.

I have yet to link up pre-crux moves/crux/post-crux moves, so no tick just yet. Soon. If anyone has more knowledge about this boulder problem, please feel free to improve this page.
