Description 

A tuff bouldering classic: powerful, yet technical, and immensely satisfying. Grab the pumice banana and a small right crimp and pull a couple steep moves to the big sloper. Keep it tight for a radical sequence through the large dish to a gaston, and finally, a baseball-sized pocket and the huge shelf. Beautiful.

(Word has it the starting pinch and a crucial foot have been steadily disintegrating over time, so step lightly and/or get this done quick.)

Location 

In the Slow Dance Cave, this takes a pretty obvious line from the banana hold up and slightly left. The high class 4 topout is not essential but sure makes getting off the boulder easier.

Protection 

A couple pads and a spot for the crux - the landing is very good.

Between being abused by wire brushes, damaged with pof and general slow decay - the start of this problem has gone from being stiff V5 to unpleasant V6.

It's really no longer worth doing.

Don't let the erosion turn you away, this climb still packs in some awesome and unique moves. The stand start on the rail is worth doing on its own if you can't pull the opening moves.
