Description 

Sit start with hand matched on an obvious jug in the cave. From there, come out and match hands on a fantastic, incut edge (crux), then follow with another match on the good edge up and to the left (slightly cramped territory, as the boulder behind the problem is very close). After that, hit the lip, and top it out.

Location 

Ascend the northeast face of Arcadia Block.

Protection 

A pad or two should do it, the landing is pretty good.
