Description 

Start under the right side of the overhanging uphill face of the Goliath Boulder. Go straight up using slots, side pulls and gastons from a squat. A tricky and dynamic move to bad holds around the lip guards the transition from the overhang to the slab above, or maybe you can find a better way). Surmount the slopey bulge using small crimps and side pulls and work up the small vertical side pulls on the slab to the top. An overlooked and hidden but obvious hold brought the send. Really really fun!

Location 

This is the rightmost problem on the overhanging uphill face of the Goliath Boulder.
