balancy

Description 

This route is defined by balance, short but intense, the holds are small. The top out can feel sketchy. Do it from a stand start. There is no real crux and no powerful moves, so remember your balance and move slowly. Start with your hand about head height with a hand out right and your left right in front of your body pull onto the rock and move your right hand up about two feet. Then stretch out left to a small hard to find hold, once in this position get situated and slowly move right hand above your head to a pretty good hold, match then top out.

There is an alternate sit start here as well maybe half a grade harder. This is on the small sharp flake that is fairly low, the start is cramped and hard, with awkward feet.

Location 

This is on the uphill face of Ship's Prow Boulder, just right of the route Ships Prow.

I named this and gave it an grade I thought was reasonable, this climb is dirty so I am not sure if it has been done before or goes by a different name any info would be appreciated...

I like the route a lot, it is super balancy and it will take you awhile to figure out where you are going exactly.
