Stem up high into the cave, and then jam your hands into the crack on the left corner of the cave roof out and over, gain a chickenhead like block, and finish.

In the 'Colorado Bouldering Front Range' guide by Phillip Benningfield and Matt Samet, there are two routes that start in the cave.

The description for this route would make it 'Crack, Snapple, Pop' at V0. 'Cavus Maximus' is a V1 in the book: "Start in jugs on cave's right wall and climb to the right around the arête on positive edges."
