Description 

A short, powerful problem. Sit start on a good flat hold on the arete. Finesse your way up into two underclings at waist level, then step high and slap out right for the crystal (crux). Crimp hard and stand up to a better hold out left before topping out.

Someone attacked this problem with a brush not long ago and yielded new but useless holds out left.

Location 

On the back arete of the Rainforest boulder, away from the trail. Shares a common starting hold with All Purpose.

One of the better V8's that I've done in the area, so far. Really interesting moves to get to the top of this thing. I definitely recommend it if you're in the area. Great for solo sessions too! footage starts at 2:12
