Description 

A tricky start leads up into the awkard leaning corner, small pinscars allow a fairly burly lieback with tenuous feet to the finishing holds.

Location 

Pin-scarred dihedral left of Johnson Problem.

Protection 

Top-rope, long slings to the ground and a couple of small nuts. OR boulder problem at V1R.

Photo of Jeff Johnson here. But there's no way it's V5.

Really fun moves on this route, but it's really sandy near the top. Quite challenging to set up a TR as well.

Absolutely not V5, probably around V1+. Regardless, it is a stellar boulder problem. I don't feel saying it is forty feet is accurate either, probably 25ft.

Thanks Mike - 25 feet sounds right.
