Description 

Jump with hands matched (reach if you're tall) to a high sloper, get your feet over the undercut bottom and onto the rock and then lock off to reach a smaller and higher sloper. Continue to the top making more of the same moves to an easy top-out. Downclimb a bit and then jump off the northeast side of the boulder to descend.

The rock on this is fairly gritty, but it has improved over the years and shows what a fair bit of traffic can do to help clean up a problem. Although some may consider this a "bomb", the problem actually features some cool moves that go at a reasonable grade - if this was Yosemite granite it would be rated much harder, although certainly easier on your skin.

Location 

Located on the west face of a boulder which sits 50' southeast of Stem Gem.
