Guidebook calls it v6 but it does seem way soft at that grade...

The book says to start low at opposing crimps for the sit (I've noticed some folks starting at the way-better holds above and to the right of the crimps, which can also be reached from the sit). I found V6 for the sit dead-on. The difficulty eases considerably after the first move though.
