Watch out for the two foot cement pillar at the bottom. Its right were your head could land if you fall from near the top.

I cannot get the top of this damn problem. It's a head game. Driving off your right foot, which is smearing on shit, one decent palms down hand and a 15 foot cheesegrater to the bottom if your foot slips at all. It's a 5.11 problem, whether its a, b, c or d, I won't speculate because I haven't sent it.

This is a really cool line, worth getting on. Would be really scary to boulder though...
