Don't look at the chalk as it's very misleading. Jugs up to a left hand sloper. Skip the second sloper and do a big move left handed up to a crystal. Right hand to the bad sidepull and the rest is easy. Don't fall topping out.
Downclimb either Cleavage or a gritty 5.6 fistcrack on the back (south) side.

Funky rock makes for a fun problem - soft for the grade.
The down climb will get your concentration.

Ignore the micro-beta in the description, I flashed it with a different sequence and it felt no harder than V4. A very good, fun problem that deserves 3/5 stars. Euan is right, the downclimb was a wakeup, I went down the far arete and then back across the face on loose grainy psuedo jugs, maybe there's a better way, but it all looked unappealing.

The best way off the boulder is to downclimb Cleavage which is not that bad due to it's low crux. The gritty crack on the backside of Cleavage is not recommended even though it's easier .
