Earth Boys is on the face to the left of the actual combination blocks and starts under the diagonally running crack on the left hand side of the face. Make a few moves up through good holds before gaining the big crack running through the face. Good hand jams can be used to traverse a bit to the right before pulling above the crack and clipping the third bolt and then using the crack for feet. Keep climbing up and over the lip to shared anchors with Dancer for the traditional finish.
An alternate finish ends at the anchor for Ring of Fire and ups the grade a notch with delicate moves to the right that can be a bit unnerving based on the pendulum swing fall potential. With either finish it is a great climb with good movement.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
