Has anyone climbed to the left of the 5.8 Crack? I have always looked at it and I have heard it is nice climbing. Anybody else's advice?

Does anyone have any info on the small bouldering problem that starts under (beneath the overhang at the ground) the 5.6 in the redbird area? (this is the face that peaks outward about 30ft south of the main redbird wall - black and white steaked routes, etc)
It's pretty difficult to spot with all of the rocks beneath it, but well worth it for the fun moves (especially the start). Probably in the range of V3 PG13.
