Left a route or two of Lay-Z-Boy, just to the right of a "mini cave" on the boulder's northmost face. Some cool problems might come out of the "mini cave", but for now, spiders seem to be the only ones climbing around in here. Looking not far to the right of spiderland, a few sideways/diagonal crimps and edges can be seen making a vertical line up to the boulder's lip. Sit start from low crimps to get the full grade, or stand start for a likely V1+ version. The longer your arms, the easier the start will be. Once you reach the slanted jug above the over-vertical section, work those feet up and begin the search for usable holds to top out with. The crux and consequently most exciting part of this line is making that dicey transition between lower section and upper slabby section right before topping out. Having this problem completely change nature 3/4 of the way up makes for a tasty finish. Hope you like it.


A crash pad helps if you're down for working the sit start.
