This problem is short and stout. A modest grade for a route that when first looked at will "Seam Easy" (hence the name), but will quickly prove otherwise. Apparently first done as a sit start, this problem starts on abnormal crystals and climbs the thin seam to the top. It's basically a 3 move wonder, the first move is where Greg has his right hand in the photo (a small 3 finger slot), second move is where left hand is in the photo, third move is a lunge with the right hand to the top. Power, but more importantly precision, will go a long way on this great "V5" (quotations because 'seams easy' seemed really hard for the given V5).
Go to the lillipad boulder and look at Frogonius, now turn 90 degrees left, walk about 15-20feet, and turn 90 degrees to the left again. You'll be looking at "Seams Easy", easily identifiable by an orange face with a black streak and seam and horizontal gash.
