Description:

Start at a small prow to the right of The Pit, between 7th and 8th drillmarks to the left of The Pit. Climb the cracked prow off the ground and quarried wall above, 40 ft. The online guide lists this climb as "Block Party" and says it is a 5.8, but some locals call it Before Me and rate it a 5.6, and yet others call it a 5.7. The bouldery start seems to make it at least 5.7.

I think the climb could stop at the ledge and just be a boulder problem because the beginning is basically the only hard part. If it was a boulder problem it would probably be a V1.
