Description 

Sit start in the small cave to the left of Green Face - start on a small low pinch for the right, and a so-so low sidepull on the left. Make a big move up and right to a positive sidepull, then heal hook onto the arete. Move up the crimps to the undercling, nice safe moderate top out. Climb down the ramp on the back of the boulder.

Note: there are other methods to start this problem, the sidepull/pinch works for me. Also, you can use a higher left jug/sidepull to start, goes at easy V5-ish.

Location 

Five mile

Protection 

Pad or two is fine.

This feels closer to V2/V3 max for LCC standards.
