I sent a line that started matched on the low hueco (near Austin's left knee) and threw right hand to the sloper. Toe hook/bicycle the starting hueco and hit a left hand crimp just above the sloper and the huck for the jug. Felt approx. V8-9 to me, but I'm starting to think this is not the intended start for Tiger Woods.
