Description 

The farthest left, short, overhanging and really nasty looking face climb at the Playground. Luke Laeser and I spent many an afternoon attempting this TR problem and never came close to linking moves together. There are, however, holds. Mostly crappy crimpy underclings.

And someone will do it someday.

Location 

Far left side of the playground.

Protection 

TR problem.

A bouldering grade might be more appropriate here, as the difficulties on this "route" are only 20' worth. The landing isn't pretty, though, so you'd definitely want a rope no matter what.

It's at least V10 as a boulder problem, or at least that's how I recall feeling while trying it.
