Description 

This thin route climbs the center of the north face of the boulder pictured here. I've highlighted it so you can kinda see where it goes. Follow a perfect sequence on clean, solid, small crimps and poor feet through the lower section of the face, then set up for a nice sized move to a flat lip 3/4 of the way up. Then you've got yourself a couple more feet to the top lip. Tabletop boulder with a walkoff. Very nice!.... Right side of the face has a great V2 that starts low and follows a slanted ledge and crimpy slots to the big right arete and up.

Location 

This massive boulder is right in the middle of the main area. Heading up the main trail you'll see the heavily chalked up V5 arete on your right, Boom is to your left. The problem doesn't see much traffic, so you gotta get close to see the crimps hidden in the lichen.

Protection 

I'd do 2-3 pads, to cover the rock at the base of the problem.
