Starts inside the overhang, goes directly out to the point, using a double heel hook manoeuvre. Wind up with the obvious circular handhold at the lip in your left hand, then reach up to the knob with the right. FA: Burks

3 out of 5 stars Heel Hooks not Needed

Fun route on great boulder. Rock is sharp, bring tape.

This route may require a lit of extension but doesn't require any difficult heel hooks except maybe a little help if resting.
