Description 

Super cool line! Feels highball, and needs a veteran spotter/ adequate padding to get the mental game feeling smooth:)

As you walk past the Highlands Highball, stay on the trail and walk for a short distance to the next set of rocky outcroppings in the close distance. as you walk up to the outcroppings, look to the left and an inclined, tall, highball face comes into view.
This problem can be found by locating the right-trending ledge that helped form a massive protruding triangle formation. the problem sit-starts just to the left of the bottom of that triangle, and actually uses the huge ledge as feet and climbs the face holds straight up, to the left of it.
sis start to the left of the right trending diagonal ledge, matching a massive-smooth-incut jug feature with a heel-hook. toss up to a close, flat gaston and then press up through small crimps. gain a long, downward facing gaston rail, and then obtain the right hand upside down side-pull. work your feet up the long, diagonal ledge to your right, acting as a dihedral. make a hard press up to a small crimp. work out left to gain the lip found within the huge notch feature on top of the boulder. there is a pyramid/triangle looking feature made from the left side of the notch, and on its top is a jug to utilize for the top-out...
