Myself climbing on The Roots boulder, Smugglers No...
A solid V5. Start 7 or 8 feet from the left side of the boulder on the crimps at 3 and 4 feet.
Using technical foot work, pull through to a crimpy side pull/undercling, and climb straight up to the large horizontal crack. Go up left to a bad, incut edge and make a big move up right to a big juggy hole in the wall. Top out for a mossy finish.
Start 7 or 8 feet from the left side of the boulder on the crimps at 3 and 4 feet: there is a large chalked jug below and to the left of the start, but this is not the start. Down climb the opposite side via the root system.
Bring at least two pads. Topout is sketchy without a spotter
Be warned! It's as scary as it is dope.

great problem, crux is low, once you hit the horizontal, i remember it being over until the top out - perfect intro to high-balling as well, as the landing is perfect - now go do the V5 on moontower!
