Troy squeezing the water out of Aquatic Hitchhiker...

Description 

Do you like overhanging compression problems? Then this guy might be for you.
Start as for Aquatic Hitchhiker and make some hard moves past the pocket to the jug finish of the problem.
Instead of dropping off, take some deep breaths and climb leftwards on decent rails, and make your way across the cave and top-out around the corner as for Beefcake.
This full value line will most likely pump you out and punt you off going to a jug near the finish.

Remember to breath, and shaking out on the jug finish of Aquatic Hitchhiker could prove useful.

There is a direct finish for Aquatic Hitchhiker as well, but it has a terrifying finish.

Location 

This problem is located at the back of the Ice Caves slightly past the giant suspended bock known as Mothership Connection. You start on a roof with some heelhooks and small holds, and you hug a refrigerator to a jug.

Protection 

You will probably want at least three pads for this problem due to its length. A spotter to move them for you might be helpful as well. The more pads the better, just don't dab near the end!
