There is a Black Plague V7 Variation goes with a left exit, instead of the right one on the ramp. Also, all the holds on the ramp are off. If this is still too easy, you can sit start to make it a solid 7

Here's what I think Pat Rodriggs is referring to above, White Plaque Sit, V7. Only two underclings/pinches are on between the sit and the compression moves up above that lead to the "direct top-out." The two jugs and flake on the Ramp, the left pocket on the left rail, and the new jug formerly known as the Cheese Grater on the Ramp are all considered off as hands and feet for this eliminate. Excellent boulder if you can appreciate an eliminate to an eliminate.
