Very helpful to have a pad and spotter on the boul...
This problem truly has it all. Start matched on a chest height jug at the right end of the overhung face. Move left and then up into a body tension crimpy crux sequence. Go up over the lip of the overhang into slopey territory. Finish off with a (safer than it feels) heady topout.
I usually try this one with three pads. One on the ground, one leaning against the smaller boulder, and one on top of the smaller boulder, with a spotter on top. It is a hassle to set up and protect, but this climb is awesome.

This get absolutely no stars in the guidebook, but well deserves at least 3. You can get away doing this problem with 1 pad and no spotter. It's possible to step off mid-crux on the boulder behind you. Well worth the time and effort. One of the best of the grade at the pond.

Definitely a four star line. Starts off powerful and ends kind of delicate, the movement is just as good as slob or ians. Though it is possible to step off during the crux up high, it is nice to have a pad on that boulder in case you were to pop off just before that flat jug. I can see the potential for dragging your back down the boulder or worse clocking your head on it if there wasn't a pad there. I use two pads on this, one below the boulder, one on the boulder, and a spotter on the boulder.
