Description 

Start sitting on the steep wall about 5 feet left of Minotaur matched on an obvious, giant, flat feature sticking out of the wall. Using the pedestal for feet, move slightly left and up making use of a big, right undercling/pinch in order to get to the sharp, horizontal crimp. Eventually get a left hand sloper and a crimpy, right sidepull, lockoff, and go big for the top. The first ascent was flashed back in the day.

Is the "pedestal for feet" the rock sticking out of the ground that is right below the large starting hold? It seems like folks have been using it, and it makes sense to use it since it is in the way.... We didn't really see a "pedestal" which to us meant a rock another one was leaning or sitting on. It seems like folks have been using it, and it makes sense to use it since it is in the way...

It seems like the business is on the face after the incut crimp anyway....

Really fun....

Yes Tim,

You use that rock for feet to start.
