A short but fun problem on quality rock that climbs the most obvious feature on the boulder. Sit start with all of your fingers in the crimpy flake. Pulling off the ground is probably the crux. Move up left to the hanging arete and follow it to the lip. Pop over the top and then you're done.


This problem is on the smaller boulder next to the Method Boulder. Drop off the back or downclimb.

This thing felt way soft for the grade, dont know if I started it wrong but There is no way it is V3 if I did it right. I started in the chalked flake and moved up following the seam. Seems way soft for the grade.

I'd have to disagree, I found this to be 3ish, possibly a little soft. I found Imperial Action or No Sweat now(?) to be harder for me than this. Different styles maybe?

Brendan, when I first climbed No Sweat I didn't know the proper name so I called it Imperial Action, once I learned the proper name I changed it to No Sweat, the actual name :) Sorry for the confusion.
