There are large detatched flakes on the overhanging East face of the Acid boulder.
A Bouldery (V4) start gets you to the jug flake, which takes pro. Then the rock angle eases, pro options cease, and the rock gets crumbly.
A sketch fest ensues

I've lead this route twice. The initial moves are so fun, the top is so scary.
There's some manky placements above the flake, but I'm pretty none of it would keep you off the ground if any of the crystals disintegrating under your feet, caused you to plummet.

I second what Josh typed. Placements up high are in crumbly rock that are barely good enough to hold the weight of the cams...but, this is a really cool route. If you want to get scared and you don't have your aid rack with you, this is the one to do.

You can actually reach behind you midway up this thing and loop a sling around the big tree. One branch actually sticks out close enough. If you fell from the exit moves, a good belayer MIGHT keep you from decking. And yep, very fun and spooky as well.
