Ian sticks the first move.
A fun, tricky, power problem that starts on the nose of a boulder and follows rounded crimps and slopey holds up an arete to the topout. Sit start to the right of Welcome to the Fold at the right end of the roof with your right hand on a good crimp and your left on a faint seam. Using the good feet, float up to the rounded crimp up left, drop into the slopey arete with your right hand, then make a big move (crux) to the good sidepull out left. Move up the slopey arete and figure out how to top out.
This problem is in a small cluster of boulders between Lakeside Crag and the Round Pond boulders just off the fire road and up from Round Pond itself. Head up the hill directly across from the Round Pond sign, left of the boulder with a red face (Seeing Red). The best downclimb is off to the right.
Pads & spotter - don't hit the log!
