Description 

I absolutely loved this problem. You begin on smallish edges, traverse left, and make a long reach to a good hold. At this point, you are hanging over what feels like a bramble filled abyss. A fall wouldn't be terminal, but you certainly wouldn't want to do it.
As you get higher, moves get a bit harder, and the delicate mantle in the no-fall zone is great fun. It seems to be rarely climbed, so expect to find a little dust on it, but I thought it was pretty clean regardless.

Location 

On the big wall that you find up the hill, past Bertha, in the cluster of boulders that holds Musashi.

Protection 

A couple of pads and a spotter. Even so, you wouldn't want to eat it from the top.
