Grab two small sloping crimps above head height. Pull a campus move to the sloping dish above with the left hand. Squeeze and put your feet on the wall. Then make a big move with the right hand to a really small crimp way up there (can be difficult to see in poor light). A low percentage move, perhaps. Then reset the feet and hands and go for the lip. Nice jug up there. Snag it and top out. Really good, maybe classic.


to the left of Child of the Storm, first climbable line to the right of the arete on that side. V1 downclimbing ability or use of trees to get down for those afraid of slabs


Pad, (treacherous landing)

This is a great description and should be that standard by which all other descriptions of boulder problems should be judged. It makes me want to drive down and get on it tonight, despite the fact that's it's about 2 degrees out and dark right now.
