Left of "Expansion Chamber", this route is the obvious face route as you come down the trail from Boulder 1. Start with opposing pressure of a high left foot/hand match with a right press against a smear. Press up until the left hand can use the mono, then undercling. Gently work your way up to the edge in the middle of the face and prepare yourself for the crux! High step both feet in a stem position, then reach up for the matching palms. Fire quickly for the halfmoon and get up over the top before the sweat in your hands forces you off! An absolute classic!
*remember not to climb on this problem for 4-5 days after it rains!!! the sidepull mideway up is no more, and the crimps beneath have also been reduced dramatically during the winter of 07/08.
