Start matching hands on a sloper rail that is about 4 feet off the ground. Move straight up from there and top out. The first 2/3 of the problem is all solid, quality rock, but the top is not great quality. Luckily, if you are 5'9" or taller, you can stand up and reach a quality hold on the top for the top out and skip the sketchy rock. The crux is closer to the bottom, so if you get past it, then the rest of the problem is pretty easy. It is a really fun route though.
The problem is on the southeast face of the boulder.
A pad and spotter.

Was this sit start? Dabbled at this line a little at this line and had to stack pads to reach holds from sit start, and I'm 5'10". From a crouch or stand, I'd give it V2-3. The sit start easily adds a grade even with stacked pads.

Yeah, we did this as a sit start and moved up. I don't want to speak for Mikie, but I thought that kind of made it harder too. A bit more technical with the feet and that sort of thing.
