Description 

About in the middle of the left side is an obvious quartz dike that arcs up to the left. Sit start under its beginning on a good hold with low foot chips out to either side. This may be hard for tall people. Pull on and quickly fire for the start of the dike. Follow the dike out about midway and break straight up, following the line of a vertical seam to the top but using holds to either side. The start of the climb is height dependent, i.e.. easier if you are short.

Location 

Look for the arcing quartz dike on the left side of the wall

I need grade confirmations on these routes. I haven't bouldered in a year and am just started climbing after a 2 month injury break, so have lost my sense of V grades.

I finally got this one today with some ease considering I struggled on it in the past. Possiblly V2+ for shorter stockies people like myself. Evan who's tall couldn't do it yet and he definitely climbs harder than me. Fun problem.
