|West of CCC trail/Talus
The crux would be the second move from a standing start.Sit start has not been figured out yet. What's bad about it? The hands, barely any handholds. When there are handholds, they're non-existent. Semi-sharp edges leading into a slopy two-finger edge. From there, finish on top with a solid bomber hold. There's really nothing good about this climb except for the first two footholds.
Below Briton's Crack. Face away from Briton's crack, hike down and away from Briton's Crack, boulder is far down. The problem is located on to the left of the arete. Thin crack on the left face of the arete is off.

Are you talking about hiking away from Brinton's Crack down the gully below the two "mini-spires" that everyone sits on to belay for Brinton's, or further east over the log that is there to prevent erosion?
How far away from Brinton's are we talking?
I just have a hard time believing some new FA in the V1-2 range was put up there since people have been bouldering in that area for years?
It is possible I guess, but a more accurate description of where the route lies would be nice...

I think Eric Z et al did this problem in the late 90's early 2000's. There is a V5 that goes up one of the faces. Git On It, the bouldering guide to DL has info, I think. So my bet is that this is not a new prob.
