Start sitting with your right hand on the obvious orange jug and your left in a sloping undercling in the hueco under the low roof. Head left to a knob hold and then bust up to a sloping topout. A wonderful little compression problem.
Surprisingly fun and full value for a smaller boulder. Reminds me of High Hat.
Will be on your left as you walk down the shallow canyon. About 100 yards downhill of Dan's Boulder.
Tim going for the sloping lip.

While topping out the initial first ascent I broke one of the handholds I used. Frustrating much? A slight shift in beta and I did the new "first" ascent. Most of the holds now on the wall seem pretty solid, so I think this version of the climb is likely to remain for a while.
A good thing too, since this climb is incredibly fun.

Awesome problem; good rock and great movement! A lot of climbing for such a small boulder, and packs a punch with that finish move.
Edit: After going back out and repeating this one today and getting a couple other strong fellas on it, I think it may be solid V6. Feels at least as hard (actually probably a bit harder) than Ballet Lessons. Thomas (who almost stuck the Brute Project today, fingers carresing that mini jug) thought it was stout, even at 6. Whatever the rating, and despite it's diminutive size, this thing climbs great.
