In the middle of the rock at the base is a tiny cave-like something. Start there, traverse a a little right, and generally follow the crack up.

This deserves three stars. A real fun problem, steep and juggy, which gets you just high enough you do not want to come off. you can start on the left (as in the picture #1), but the first hold is razor sharp. it's definitely more pleasant to start direct. Surprised to see the old B1 style ratings still bandied about. As I recall, this means that the problem has had more than one second ascent, by at least two other people other than the first ascentionist, (and unrelated to the first ascentionist), on non-consecutive days, or something like that.

Definitely harder than V0. I'd say V2+ for the standing start (see photo 1 of 3) and V3 for the sit start.
