The Tooth is the obvious small, pointy and very crystalline boulder on the approach path shortly before Little Twin Owls (just N of Jaws). The SE slab is a blast and offers many variations and eliminates; doing it no-hands would bump it up to a B1 or so, while using either arete makes for a good beginner problem.
A pad, etc. if you don't feel secure, but the hardest part is off the ground.

These are beautiful slab problems, a very good way to get used to Lumpy footwork. Amazingly, there are four problems that have gone no hands on this boulder, the easiest is slightly left of the small dihedral, right of it is another difficult no-hands problem. Right of this one is a very scary, no-hands problem up the right arete, the hardest is on the left side below an obvious chicken head. Doing these no hands is an excellent challange and good footwork workout.
