Classic! All the way around the corner and into the Sun from Xiaolin Wonder Palm, or simply walk through the cave from the warm up problems and look to your left. Start on a large detached block and move your right hand up to a good side pull. Re-situate your feet and make a hard move up to a small crimp around to the left (crux SDS). Starting from the crimp and side pull goes at V5. Make a powerful move up to the intermediate crimp or go all the way to the jug, make a bizarre mantle move (being short or very flexible hips is helpful) and top out.


Other side of the cave, obvious chalked up detached block (same start as Rotator Cuff).


Good Landing, Spotters!

The guidebook puts the standstart at a V6, but, as the neighboring "Rotator Cuff" feels harder, I can understand the V5 rating here.
