Description 

Start just left of Beginners route, left of the tree... Pull over a small overlap to get on the the slab then crimp and smear up past a shallow arch and cross Beginners Route climbing up the slab above and a little right smear your way past three mounds (hence the name of the climb)...

Very good fun indeed...

Location 

Start left of Beginners Route the cross that route to the right and up the slab...

Protection

Anybody have a pix of this line? Is it Trad friendly?

Great friction climbing! It would be a pretty spicy lead. You can get pro in the middle of the route, but a fall before that could be long. Almond Joy directly to the right has a couple more opportunities to place pro up top, but I think the unprotected beginning is more difficult.
