Description 

Start on the large triangular holds and pull right on small crimp at edge of overhang, make a long cross to crimps on right (to make this move a left toe-hook works, but I've seen it done with a heel as well) That definitely feels like crux.
Finish by throwing for the sloping top (after a few blind feels I found a nice crimp up past the lip)

Location 

To the right of Pull Down Like De Jesus

If you are tall you can skip the cross without using any other holds, this slashes the grade but it's still a cool problem.

Too bad, because the toe hook/heel hook cross through is such a fun and cool move! Another great climb.

Harder and better now that the sidepull is gone. This formerly contrived problem is now the line of weakness up this side of the boulder. Still v6, no longer soft for the grade.
