This is a really nice problem with one of the more classic slopers to hold in the Flatirons. It climbs a bulge on the north side of the Potato boulder in BH's Best of Boulder Guidebook (or maybe it's the Egg, anyway it's obvious when you are there) The guide seems to call it V3(!?) Not sure if this was a FA or not. Go do it!
SDS on 2 nice edges, right hand up, big move left to killer sloper, bust to lip...a fantastic hueco-esque problem. Go do it.
This is the best part...only about a 15 minute (tops) hike from Chautauqua, making it a great quick hit. If you head northwest from the boulder, you hit the Royal Arch/2nd and 3rd Flatiron trail junction pretty quickly. From there, you could access the Ssatellite Boulders if you need more bouldering.
1-2 pads is plenty, could probably do it solo, but its a bit dynamic and you might roll down the hill....
