Pleasantly Pebbly (5.8+, V2)

Sweet route! Too bad it's so short. Climbs as two boulder problems. Start to the right of Crack Baby. Make a delicate rising traverse to the right, above the water and along the edge of the slab. Reach a stance at the top of the slab and find a bomber finger jam in a short, diagonal crack. From here, make a second rising traverse out left to the apex of the boulder for an easy top-out. Slightly contrived; you can escape out right to considerably easier ground.

Protects well with offset nuts/tricams. A ground anchor will stop your belayer from water skiing into the stream.

To reach the belay platform, approach the stream from the Secret Garden boulder, and walk upstream along the low-angle slab until directly across from the Suspended Boulder.
