    That last little right-hand undercling is downright brutal. Super fun problem though!

    Any comments on how this climbs now vs how it climbed before the starting hold breakages? The first move felt harder than the "crux" move above, and kind of thrutchy today. Maybe I'm missing something?

    With good beta the first move went from crux to straightforward for me, I'm not certain the grade has changed much.

    I climbed this from matching on the flake on the lower right. In the book it says something about a flexing jug, though i have never seen one and assume it broke shortly after publication of the guidebook. Starting on the flake crimps with a right heel hook and a low left smear, i pulled on and reached up with my right hand to the first good, right side pull. This was definitely cruxy and desperate, and when paired with the upper crux, may be harder than V8.

    Maybe the jug breaking off is why they call it "Busted".
