Description 

A long, fun problem with some great beta. This line moves left to right up the overhanging side of the boulder and links Lactose into V-8. Sit start with hands in the small slots formed by the crack and left foot on a good block. Move right hand to the good jug, get a kneebar, and cross left hand up to a quartz crimp. Change the kneebar to a heelhook and slap a sloper on the lip before bumping into the crack (crux). Another heelhook will help the transition into the better holds. Finish up the crack.

Location 

The Welcome Boulders are the first two boulders across the bridge from the parking lot. This problem is on the backside of the second boulder.

Protection 

Two pads & a spotter
