Walk, Don't Run (5.10 or V0)
This is a 5.10 boulder problem in the middle of the cliff, beneath an exceptionally blank and vertical section of wall that has no routes. The arch provides excellent endurance training and can be a good way to warm-up, or finish off a day of cragging.
Don't bring a pad for it, the approach will suck because you have to navigate between trees and bushes and stuff. You're never more than 5ft off the ground and the landing is flat dirt except for on the left side where some bay trees grow out from the base of the wall and could potentially do bad things to your ankles if you fell on them... but a pad wouldn't help for that anyways.
You can do the whole thing as an under-cling, or for most of it you can get various sizes of handjams in the crack. Either way you're sure to get yolked if you do enough laps in a row.
None, it's a boulder problem. Unless you want to use it as aid practice for leading and following traverses. The crack is between 1 to 4 inches.
Fun burn. Watch the trees where the crack widens ...
