Another angle a couple moves before the crux.

Description 

Follow the only visible route up the middle of Casino Boulder, using barely there crimps and sidepulls facing the wrong direction. The crux comes about 2/3 of the way up, holds thin out almost entirely before the top. Plant your feet, spread your weight, and pray that you have a good spot if you don't make it.

I've bouldered up to V5 in a few other areas in the NE, and can't make an ounce of progress on this bad boy at the crux. So, with that said, I don't know how accurate the V3 grade is but that's what the old guidebook has it as.

Protection 

Pads & (good) spotters.

Not sure of what to do at the crux either. Feet just disappear. Fun project though!
