You start out on two small side pulls and start moving up using a good rail and then a pinch for your left hand. There is a dead point towards the end which is hard giving how slick this rock is.

This is a great problem, I like to go strait up from the rail on the pinch and his small crimpy friend and through the beautiful polished slopers. Same grade.

As for FA's, my guess is that people have been doing it for years (chalk is usually all over this route).

This one is so sweet. I remember this was problem that got me really excited about other bouldering other than the Quarry boulder.

Conor, I know what you mean. This problem is what bouldering is all about. I can't wait to venture back to blue mounds and boulder. We should have a party this spring! I'll look forward to it!
