Description 

Sit start inside the cave like feature matched on a good hold in a crack. Move leftwards in the crack for a couple of moves, then get high feet and flip the hands to underclings. From here make a hard and long reach up and right to a large sloper shelf. A decent climb with some scrunchy movement and friendly holds.

Location 

From The Lobster Tail head right around the boulder and locate the crack. This problem starts on the right side in a small cave like formation.

Protection 

1 or 2 pads and a spotter.

Weird little climb I had never heard of until recently and I actually thought it was better than other 5's and 6's in the zoo. Although the beta Gavin and I used was some what unpleasant it was still fun.
