Description 

Sit start at bottom of overhanging arete on slopers. Move up on slopers and pinches to reach jugs near top. Do an easy topout at the high point of the boulder. If you use the chossy rocks under pedestal of boulder for footholds, it's probably closer to V0-V1.

This has really fun moves and js fairly long (about 11 moves) for the Hammond Pond area boulders.

Location 

Enter the Webster Conservation Area from Hammond Pond Parkway, and walk along path below large hillside with cliff band. The boulder is below the large roof. If you reach the freestanding "pinnacle" boulder, you have gone too far.

Protection 

Pad. The hardest move is above a steep downhill drop, so a spotter is probably a good idea.
