Route Description 

Start on high shelf on the right side of the boulder and work your way left. From slopers, to crimpers, side clings to technical footwork, this route is a great project for those in the v3-v5 range.

Having 2 pads would be a safe bet, you're feet are under a slight overhang and your back is over another small boulder the whole route until nice juggy finish. Crux is moving from slopey section to final pinch before jug.
