BETA PHOTO: Beta for the Grinch.

Description 

Sit-start with hands on two small crimps and a big heel hook with the left foot on the west side of the boulder. From there, make an unorthodox move to the prow of the arete and continue upward. The crux for me was getting the first two or three moves. This is just atypical for Unaweep bouldering.

This is also the first problem on the video posted under the Nine Mile Style area. I just thought it was a good problem, so I wanted to share.

Location 

The problem is on the the south face of the boulder and is the best quality rock on the boulder. There's a down climb/jump on the west side. Not a big move or anything.

Protection 

A couple of pads and spotters will be good. The landing is questionable to some, so more pads and spotters never hurt.
