Head up the Falls Trail until you come across the area where it is possible to cross over (one of the first areas you can actually get close to the stream). There you will see a large boulder with a huge "split" down the center (forming what appears to be two large slabs sticking out of the ground). This problem (when standing across the stream looking at it) is located on the boulder to the right. Once you get across the water, go to the face of that boulder. The stream should now be on your left. The problem itself is to the very left of this boulder. Your right hand starts on a crimp, and your left hand is grasping the edge of the boulder. You have some good footholds to guide you up as you get your left hand higher up the edge. Once your left hand is way above your head then its time for the mini-dyno. Use your right hand to "slap" onto the top. You're literally going straight up. Its hard to change up the foot work, but I've seen people slope their left foot to the edge of the boulder for "added" balance when doing the dyno.

3 out of 5 stars Great for warming up.

Shorter guy/gals might find this a perfect warm up. Just take your time and once you get to the dyno just do it!
