Ignore the V0- in the rating. It is a typo that I could not remove.
Crux is the exposed upper headwall. There are several loose blocks, but otherwise a good adventure for the 5.8 trad leader.
P1 Climb the small crack for 15', traverse R on small ledge, then up crack system to 2 bolt anchor (55').
P2 Up the slot above anchors, trending left to avoid loosely attached block. Up easy rock for 40 feet, then attack the head wall via hand and finger cracks. Avoid a loosely attached block at the top (140').
Descent: We walked 100' W to the anchors atop Epidote.
20' R of large R facing dihedral at R end of crag, and just R of Down to the Wire, which has a bolt about 30' up.

Generally nice climbing even though a bit dirty. As Doug mentioned, beware of a couple loose blocks on P2. One is to the left about 15 ft up from the belay ledge atop P1 and the other is about 12 ft from the top of P2 right in the route line. Both are 20-30 lb and would probably land on US 6 below (so we didn't dare clean them). We were also wary of a refrigerator-sized block about 10 ft directly above the P1 belay ledge that has cracks on both sides and no bottom support, and avoided using the cracks on either side of it.

Who ever put this up has great taste in music. Captain Beefheart is the man.

This climb is probably better if you lower off after P1. The 2nd pitch has some definite scruff. There are a number of holds that shift, some blocks that move if you accidentally bump it with a knee, and pleasant bushes to scratch you up.
