This is a fun top rope or highball boulder problem. The face of the boulder has several horizontal seams which provide adequate but small holds. The crux is halfway up and involves throwing for the biggest horizontal edge on the face. Avoid the left arete at the top to keep the difficulty consistent.
The route climbs the boulder to the left of Punkin Puss & Mushmouse and right of Windy Days. Descend by downclimbing the chimney to the right of Windy Days which is left of the top out. Ascend this same chimney to set up a top rope.
Two bolts on top for a top rope anchor. It might be possible to place small cams and nuts on lead but the gear does not look all that good. Probably best done on top rope.

Actually super fun as a boulder problem, although I was happy to TR it - a little tall for my taste. Think of it as a V2 with one long move, with the only obvious downside being that the whole thing doubles as a bird bathroom. Just wash your hands when you're done.
