This is at the extreme en of lowballs and a route of no significance whatsoever. Having said that, you will get a strange, rather embarrassing, sense of satisfaction upon completing this problem. The moves are a lot of fun. The problem is on a low boulder right next to the main gravel walking trail. This boulder(if you can call it that) is below the main Lover's Perch cliff. At the left side of the boulder ( as you're looking at the Perch), sit down and place left foot on a small edge on the far left side of the boulder. Right foot is a back step on a small edge to the right on the underside of the boulder. Left hand is on a good incut and right is on a small sloper above the overhang. Pop your right hand to a better sloper further out right. Move your left foot to a heel hook. Pop your left hand to a pinch/layback hold and then move your left foot to a more secure heel hook in the ledge that was your start hold for the left hand. Shuffle your right foot to a little different edge in the same space( I had to move some of the grave so I could shift my heel around for this move ) then reach up with your left hand to a one inch seam and ripple up and right a bit. Then move the left hand up higher to a better edge on the top of the boulder. Move your right hand over to the far right side of a good rail to the right and shuffle your right foot over to a good ramp. Match your left hand on the good rail and move over a few feet. Above you should be a small corner on the top of the boulder. Mantle up using this corner and enjoy the heights. You're finished.

Descent Options:

You can really jump the three feet down if you want or descend either side of the boulder.
