First holds on The Gourd.

Description 

This is a crazy problem on a small, strangely shaped rock. To truly send this problem, you must limit yourself to using only footholds on the inside of the Gourd. Otherwise, you are doing a different and considerably easier boulder problem. Sit start on the bottom left with your feet on a large bulge in the back of the gourd (see photo). Work your way to the to the apex by stemming or any other means you can devise and top out. Once again, to be true to the problem, keep your feet inside the Gourd (it is very tempting at the end to do otherwise). 2 stars for being unique and challenging, but a bit contrived....

Location 

This lies twenty feet to NW of Tiffany.
