This is an excellent puzzle problem, and well worth the effort. It took me a bit of work to figure out, though I can usually on-sight a few grades harder. Perhaps it would help if you're a little shorter (I'm 6'1").
Start on the fin jugs in the large hole about 5-10 feet to the left of the descent tree. Traverse right to end in the other large hole on the right.
One pad is nice as the ground has a step in it at the base of the descent tree where I can easily imagine someone screwing up his/her ankle.

Spent a few minutes on this one last week after seeing it posted here: a nice harder (than the surrounding V0's) addition to the Ant.
Took me a few tries to piece together a sequence for the fairly abundant but tiny crimps. Seemed like the crux couple of moves were about as hard as anything on the Ant Traverse that I described here ...somewhere in the V3+ or V4 range seems right. I'm 5'8" and got a little bunched up at the crux (a few short, powerful resetting-type moves in a row), but I'd imagine that being much shorter will make the final lunge for the finishing hole jugs harder. At least it was a lunge for me!

Done this many times over the last 20 years or so and each time it's like a whole new problem. I think it was first V0- and has been creeping up every since. When it finally cleans up it will likely be quite hard!
