Description:

On the SE corner of Motorboat. This is a short, but fun problem. Ascend the crack untill you jam yourself so far under the roof you can't move...then keep going. Short but fun.

4 out of 5 stars You earn this one

The start hides its secrets well. Took me many tries to learn the sequence to start. Eventually got it with a foot jam, and a launching pull from the little ledge. Desperately pulled on a small flake and muscled my way to a standing position. Then my foot was stuck from the jam, once freed, the rest went good.
