Description 

Start as far down to the left as you can and traverse right on easy holds until it gets higher and harder. When the landing under you gets bad (big flat tilted boulder under it) climb straight up and top out.

Careful this is a highball with a bad landing. If you like easy highballs this is definitely worth doing. Its probably easier than 2 but its a bit harder than The Fin and heady.

Location 

This climb is on the side of the boulder that faces the Problem Mantle boulder. With your right shoulder to Problem Mantle, this climb is straight in front of you.

Protection 

pads? might be hard to get them on the slanted boulder under the top out.

To get down you need to downclimb the low angle slab on the flakes. Take your time, its pretty easy you just need to feel it out. I would recommend climbing the easy slab first then downclimbing back down it to get familiar.

Just discovered there are 2 loose jug flakes on this climb, one at the top. They are not at all necessary to use, but they might be your first choice so look out.
