Follow the ultra-juggy flake and make a big move to the lip. Extremely polished.


crashpads are good.

Instead of topping out at the top of the flake, downclimb a move and traverse left across a rail to the far left of the boulder for an excellent warm up. V2 in the guidebook, I believe.

The polishing at the bottom may make it more like a V1 someday.

Yeah, I'd say that day has come... My buddies and I were slipping all over the first 5 feet before finally getting up. Felt more difficult than other V1/V2s in the area because of the polish.
