David on Pickle Jar.

Description 

Start on left side with left hand on left arête and right hand on pinch about waist high. Put your left foot in a vertical crack in bottom left and a right toe hook in big volleyball-size hole in bottom of rock to keep from barn-dooring. Move your right hand up to an obvious, two finger pocket. Cross with your left to a good crimp just NE of the pocket. Move your right hand to a decent rib running SE diagonal across the face. Match with left hand on rib, and then do a quick pop up to the lip on natural "V" in top of the rock towards the upper right edge. Finish out on/around the corner. The crux is from first two holds to finger pocket. It is as quick climb (about 6 moves), but it has a good feel and is fun.

Location 

This is on the East side of Honeymoon Boulder.

Nothing really but maybe a pad.

Variation is a sit start around the corner (under Walk In The Park) to undercling on flake with left hand and then work way around corner to finish out the route. I'd say that would make it V1+/V2-.
