Just right of Boulder Quartz System is a thin crack leading up to an overhanging right-facing corner. This is Counting Sheep. Placed small gear and climb up nice moves to the start of the overhaning corner. Clip bolts and make a series of strenuous moves up into the corner. Gain a ledge and the two-bolt anchor.
Small to mid-size gear protect the lower crack. Three bolts protect the upper crux section.

Underappreciated but a bit overrated: 2 star quality, 1 move 5.11-,SK.

Good mixed climb. Bottom 2/3 eats stoppers or cams. Good fun. If the trad line wne the whole way, it would be of a more continuous style and thus a better climb, or the same may be said if the top 1/3 of sport were more continuous, but neither of those is what nature gave us, so the extended nature of the two combined offer the best option.THe climb has a single crux of ~10+/11- climbing and then a balancy move up top, where a tiny TCU can add 1 pcs pro (if you are squeemish) but the fall would be safe anyway.
Borderline 2-stars. I likes it, but the bottom still neads some cleaning.
Otherwise 5.10... but for a "one-move-wonder" 5.11a crux.

Fun climbing to an intimidating move at the roof (second bolt). Go for it, because it is well protected and there are jugs above.
