This is probably the tallest line on the rock but is still somewhat obscure. Start between Sunshine and the main V3 up the middle (west face) and crank for the deep 2-3 finger pocket with your right hand. The problem goes straight up from here on small holds (a left sidepull high in the seam), ending up at a bad pinch on the right arete, from which you must throw all the way to the top of the boulder. The pinch has deteriorated over time but the move still goes.

Bring lots of pads and spotters.


Multi crash pads.
