DescriptionFrom small hand holds, work up to holds above the bulge, scramble up and left to finish on the slab to the left.
The FAist, Rich Goldstone: The route follows the blue dotted line. I ended the line where I think the triangular pocket is; from there, make one more reach up right to the ledge on Squiggles, then traverse off left or solo Squiggles.
The large hold to the left (that the red line runs through - a foothold for the start of Squiggles) is not on the route, which is, consequently, a bit contrived.
I did it in the mid-seventies (that would be 1970's, no wisecracks please). I don't know much about V-grades but I can pretty much guarantee it ain't no V0. The reach to the pocket is long for me at 5'9" and how hard it feels will probably have a lot to do with the boulderer's height.
