The route.

Description 

This is a short and powerful route, and only has a few moves but these moves really pack a punch.

Start on a small crimp above head height with really good feet because the rock curls out a the bottom. Once you have matched on this horizontal crimp move your prefered hand up to a crimp that is at an odd angle, move your feet up and go to the lip, then top out.

I stumbled across this problem and it had chalk on it already so I dont know any of the FA info,if anyone out there knows I would like to give proper credit. Also I dont know the proper name so I just gave it this name, see protection section for the reason I picked this name.

Location 

When walking the path to Boundary Rock, this route will be on your right. When you are facing Mo Money Mo Problems turn around 180 degrees and you will see a sharp route that is slightly overhanging this route is on the overhanging face. Also if you walk to the right of The Twin Boulders and pass it on the right, this route will be straight ahead of you on the overhanging west facing face.

Protection 

Pads spotter. The fall can be poor from this route because of the rocks behind you, when you fall you can fall into this problem. The first time I tried it I did exactly what was described above and bruised my hip (source of the route name, i.e. the famous quote from Big Daddy).
