Super good rock quality and unique movement for the area. Go do it!  View of the boulder and problem as you veer off the trail.  Milo sticking the first move. He cruised it, but for the average height (over 5') this move is a grunt!  Start on the crimp flake and work up and left. Going right is a separate more chossy finish to the problem (V4?).  Boulder map. I took the liberty of naming the boulders. Let me know if any already had a different name.
