BETA PHOTO: V0 escape to the Flat-topped edge above the overha...
This route really doesn't have a name. Heck, it isn't even in any guidebook. However, when I first tried the V2 on this rock, this seemed a natural escape from the vicious overhanging edges on that route, and turned out to be quite fun.
Start on the horizontal flake at midheight. Climb small but nice edges up the overhanging face to a clean, sharp horizontal edge. Spot the flat-topped edge to the right, set up and fire for it from the horizontal.
Work straight up from this flat-topped edge to the topout and go check out the supposed 2X4 hold that tops out the V2.
On the right side of the 2X4 Boulder, the flat-topped edge easy to identify above the overhang.
Boulder pad is nice.
