On the right side of the Base Camp Boulder overhang, there is a three foot long rounded ledge. Monkey bar out from the inside of the overhang to the good horizontal crack below the rounded ledge, grab the right most end of it with your right and put your left about a foot and a half to its left, lock off and reach up. Oh yeah, use a left heel/toe lock. If you reach with your left, the problem is probably V3, with the right V4. The problem will make you feel like you've got stumps for arms. FA: Burks and Zweig

Descent Options:

Down climb until you reach the over hang then enjoy a small 5 foot fall to your pad.

3 out of 5 stars Thalidamide Arms ascent

Not sure og the humor or reasoning for the name. Thalidamide arms would not be the first thing that came to mind.
Route can be done as a sit start at the opening of the over hang on far right side. Moves up to rounded ledge(V1), follows out (V1+), and up the most prominent arete (V4).
