Description 

This is an area classic that is given credit in Boston Rocks. It ascends the easiest way up a overhung face. Stand start with your hands on the obvious, slopey platform, and move into the left-trending rail/ledge. Work your way up and left following the weakness in the cliff.

Boston Rocks description: "Bob Parrot found and established this bouldering line in the 1980s. Parrot also did the first repeat. John Sherman got the third ropeless ascent in 1995. The rating is tacitly unstated, but Sherman then called it "the best boulder problem...in New England".

So...who has the FA??

Location 

When you get to the overlook, keep walking straight and trend to the left. You will arrive at a overhung face. You are there.

Protection 

Pads and spotters or a top rope. There is one bolt at the top. There are limited options for backup, so bring long slings to back up the bolt.

I haven't topped out on this yet. Still working the last few moves. Feels like it will go at about V5, but input is welcome.
