Finally, I remembered to add this.

Description 

Start on lowest good hand jams and fight for deep cupped hands to fists as you work your way towards the topout jugs. This thing must have been climbed, it is so obvious, but it must not get much traffic, based on the amount of lichen that came of in my eyes from hand jamming. It would clean up well with traffic alone.

Location 

Not long before the Summit Trail flattens out and joins back up with the Meadows Trail 947, there is an obvious crack boulder problem just to the right of the path. It's almost impossible to miss. This is a great little warmup problem on your way to Greyrock, or a great way to put up one more line on your way down.

Protection 

No pad is needed, it has an excellent landing.

This thing is like a V0 Boulder Problem. We have been doing this in tennies for years. Looks intimidating, but it's not when your on it. I've never seen anyone fall out of this crack, even climbers who have no crack technique.

For good fun. Do the tall slab to the left of this boulder. V4ish... Ohh and the next boulder up has an amazing dyno, and it's real tall.. V7/8

Thanks for the update, I think the grade makes sense, especially if you don't stick to the crack. Any other good boulders nearby? Not sure if I want to try to flash a V7-8 with no pad but not sure I want to haul a pad for 1 thing.

You should totally take a pad, warm-up on this, and go to the meadow. Fun moderates to some tougher stuff await you.
