Puffing Stone Traverse is somewhat of a misnomer as this is not really a traverse per se, although it is the most difficult finish for F.A.S.T. Anyway, begin from a sit on the east face of the Puffing Stone Boulder, midway through F.A.S.T. Trend left 5 or 6 feet via numerous conspicuous edges, none of which is all that great individually. Taken together, however, they do allow for numerous solutions (very static to full on dynos) to this problem. Pull up and over on good edges.
As for the grade, this thing is easier than The Perch, so my V6 rating may be criticized. IMHO, that problem's grade is an ego crusher and not in line with reality. Whatever ... this little problem was fun to play on.

NCCC guide says this is called Puffing Stone V5, and the FA goes to Pat Goodman. Cool problem.
