|The Yosemite Boulder Area
climb up the right angled beginning finger to hand sized crack with some pretty solid toe hooks into a pretty good jug to match on, pull your foot into the triangular shaped hole and cantilever your knee in, turn your hips,layback on the wide crack at the top or treat it like an offwidth.
facing the Yosemite Boulder from the round pond side, walk around the right side and look up, if you walk to climbers left from the bolts on the yosemite boulder, it will be about 30 feet around from there.
crash pad or two, I put my back pack under the pad covering the death spike under the route to make the landing "softer" either way, you don't want to fall after half way.

I did it the other day. It can't be more than V2. Once you encounter the crack you do a strange move to arrange yourself for the top lieback. It's a strange move for sure, but not terribly hard. It certainly makes you wonder what's going to happen if you fall with your leg stuffed in the hole. I'd say there's a reason nobody really does it.
