One of the nicer problems in the area, this problem was discovered underneath a thick layer of moss. The holds are brushed and the problem is good to go. Step off the rock onto the good rail for the foot. Right hand on a good edge up high and left hand on a low sidepull. Bring left hand up to a sloper with a thumb catch, adjust the feet and throw for the sloper with a divot at the lip of the boulder.
