The face climb to the left of Slabadon, which is the arete climb on this tall and somewhat dirty part of the massive second set boulder. Start on chest height crimps, go up and left and eventually top out very high on easier terrain.
The tall face climb on the lichen covered boulder. The start of the climb faces a tree about 5 feet away.
One or two pads with a spotter.

This climb is meant to be done avoiding the good holds on the arete at right. Definitely contrived that way, but likely harder than v2. Definitely harder than its neighbor to the right. Given v5 in the NEB guidebook, it's probably closer to v3/4 in relation to other problems at the Pond.
