I had tried this line years ago but never sent it. Nice work!

I actually didn't even try it. Spotted the boulder on the way to my car and checked out the holds, but my Achilles was killing me, so I didn't want to put my shoes back on. I just posted it up here, because I figured someone had or would eventually climb it. Wasn't sure if it was already done, so I made up a name and posted it - nothing brings out good beta like bad beta.

I will have to look the next time I go, but I think I climbed an easy problem on the right side of the overhang but don't remember sending the better line on the left. I also remember having to clear a dead tree from the boulder....

This is harder than V5 from the full legit sit. It will go but I couldn't find an opposing sidepull so it's two left facing sidepulls with a good right foot but you want to move up left hand first (I think). Going right hand first is pretty far to a worse hold.

Also, the back arête (around left from this problem) looks halfway decent too...
