|Second Set Boulder
This problem truly has it all. Start matched on a chest height jug at the right end of the overhung face. Move left and then up into a body tension crimpy crux sequence. Go up over the lip of the overhang into slopey territory. Finish off with a (safer than it feels) heady topout.
I usually try this one with three pads. One on the ground, one leaning against the smaller boulder, and one on top of the smaller boulder, with a spotter on top. It is a hassle to set up and protect, but this climb is awesome.

This get absolutely no stars in the guidebook, but well deserves at least 3. You can get away doing this problem with 1 pad and no spotter. It's possible to step off mid-crux on the boulder behind you. Well worth the time and effort. One of the best of the grade at the pond.
