This problem is located on "Dead Cat Rocks", which is further North up the canyon and on the other side of the creek from the main cliff band. Climbing on this outcrop was banned in the SF Parks & Rec "Significant Natural Resource Area Management Plan" (section 6.3-12 and 6.3-13, available here: http://sf-recpark.org/ftp/uploadedfiles/wcm_recpark/SNRAMP_Final_Draft/6_Site-Specific/63OShaughnesy_GlenPark.pdf)

This is a great problem, though the grade is all over the map in the guides. The Supertopo guide gives V3 for a jump start and the North/West Tahoe Bouldering Guide gives V5 for the stand start.

Great boulder of moderates. The left arete (beside the tree) is a classic!

The 5.8 goes direct up the slab above the crack, without using that right hand edge. Quite delicate and super highball.

Are the X's in the above photo bolts, or ...? From the bottom the anchor situation looks dubious, and the hillside above the rock looks nasty (steep scree / dirt).

Be really careful hopping the fence at the top to setup a top rope off the chain - it used to be possible to duck under the fence, but they've put a second fence there to stop that. The ledge on the other side of the fence is only 1-2 feet wide, and then it's the 45 foot drop down into the park.
