This overhanging diheadral hand to offwidth crack can be bouldered relatively safely, but can be a fun lead. The crux is when the crack changes from hands to offwidth.
West face of Freshman Mountain, 100 yards uphill from Rock Clark Wall. Look for a short overhanging dihedral. Downclimb the slab to the climbers right for the descent. Be careful as some of the rock is rotten.
#2-#5 C4, no anchors. The #5 is to protect the hand traverse on top of the boulder (definitely needed for protection of the 2nd to keep them from swinging into a jagged flake if they fall).
