Start on the large bloc in the seam, find small feet, and throw or use small crimps to gain large jugs and literally flop (mantle) over to the small ledge. Potential to extend from lower start.

Same start as "Frisbee Flop", though head left up the seam and up slopers and crimps to the higest point of the boulder, mantle can be trickier than first thought!
