Another nice contribution Adam. This problem is a little sharp for some. That said, if the sidewall landing wasn't there, I suspect it would be as popular as First Overhang and Just Right.
According to Pat Ament's High Over Boulder, the FA was by Jim Holloway in the mid to late 1970s or Skip Guerin in the early 1980s. Back then ... it was easier, but similar to First Overhang, a crucial handhold broke off making it harder.
As for the actual grade, Benningfield called it V6 ... I've got it as V7 in the yet-to-be-published Flagstaff Mountain Bouldering Map & Guide. Whatever ... grades schmades.

|Thanks for the correction on the FA, Chip. I agree from what I've seen that it's probably more correct at V7. Also, a good reason I've yet to spend time on it is, in fact, the boulder munching your behind.|
