Some areas require a guide.

Description 

Start in opposing sidepulls at head height. Crank up to a poor left hand crimp, toe in hard and grab a slightly better right hand crimp. Re-set and reach with the left hand to a good sidepull. The crux next move can be done two ways, drive-by up and left with the right hand for the jug, or crimp a bad gaston and go with the left hand. From the jug the moves ease off but your getting high. Traverse right past Choss Training to get to the top.

Considered a difficult tick for the grade.

Location 

On the main wall of the area, just past the Diaphanous Boulder. Look for sidepulls and chalk marking the start of this problem. Descent walk right and around back to ground level.

Protection 

Pad, flat landing

Not sure if the first left hand ever was a crimp but sloper with a chossy thumb catch is the only way I'd describe it now.
