Description 

The classic line up a beautiful tombstone-like face. Stand atop the cheater stones or a stack of pads to reach two decent edges. Make a powerful deadpoint up and left to a small crimp, then continue up the faint arete feature to improving holds and a simple topout. Absolutely one of the best problems at Gloria's.

Location 

At the west end of the field, this is on the backside of a large boulder (ie, you will see it once you have walked past it.)

Protection 

Pads, spotter

Does anyone start using the two holds you can grab from the ground without a pad stack? Seems like it would make it a bit tougher. I'll see how it goes and report back.

I've seen a couple different guys do the "low" start... Looks burly.
