Description 

Excellent little problem up stellar rock.

Start with opposing sidepulls(left hand in the seam, right hand around the corner) and high feet.

Make a few short, powerful moves up the shallow seam until it disappears, and then make a reachy and very balancy move up to a sloping crimp to top out.
In true Triassic fashion, top out is slopey and a little desperate.

Location 

Located in the small cluster of boulders on top of the small hill across from the Hammerhead boulder. There is a huge part of rock on the left side that broke off.

This route is located on the right arete, starting in the shallow seam with your left hand, and right hand on a sidepull/undercling around the corner. Hike your feet up into the small dihedral and start using that layback technique

Protection 

2 pads should cover it.
unexpected falls are likely to occur at the crux, so spotters should pay attention until the very end
