The start holds

Description 

Start from a crouch, with your left hand on a low side pull on the left side of the arête, and your right on an obvious low side pull on the right. Pull on and climb right wards to an easy mantle. Spotters beware. Detached blocks are not used for feet.

Location 

From the saddle between two obvious craggy features when walking to monolith (just before thunderbird bulge), drop down and left. On the back side of the southern craggy feature, 40 feet from the trail you will see Precious. The wrestling the bear boulder is just below.

Protection 

1-3 pads, spotter is key to prevent a possible bad fall off a ledge.

Managed to kick off a few of those branches on the downed tree below the shelf of a landing. Also gave the trunk a turn so anything left should be facing down if you (or your spotter) happen to spill off the landing.
