Description 

Trashcan Man ascends a featured overhang on decent rock over a very good landing.

Sit start with hands matched on a big flat edge and left foot heel-toe cam (same start as Easy Livin'). From there, stick a great left hand edge, follow with a right hand two-finger edge, then move both hands to a good crescent-shaped edge, set the feet, make a big move up to a great edge, match, and drop off.

I normally see the problem through on the top outs, but the upper section has at least one large, unconsolidated chunk of rock that could be pulled off. Traversing right for the finish would probably be more solid, but the real business lies in the problem I described above.

Location 

It climbs the west face of Roundabout.

Protection 

A pair of pads will work well. The immediate fall zone is great, but there a few rocks just behind the problem.
