BETA PHOTO: Call Me starts in the hueco, and the manufactured ...

Description 

Start in the obvious hueco, move up to a good edge and top out on cool slopers. It's just a couple of moves, but this is a super fun problem.

According to the description over at rc.com, the good edge is chipped, and it certainly makes the problem a lot easier. I've heard of people doing the original problem and not using the edge, and apparently it goes at V6.

Originally it was a good crimp and V4. That broke and it was a small pinch, V6. Then someone chipped the pocket-edge thing.

It's a bit sad to learn that it was chipped, but it is an excellent problem. It would be extremely more difficult without the good edge.

I really enjoyed this climb...although finding out that some idiot chipped a hold because they couldn't climb it really irritates me!

V 6 without using the chipped hold? That things hard w/o using the chiseled hold.

Definitely V6 without the chipped hold. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. A slightly harder variation starts on the "hueco" and a delicate crimp, then busts up and right to a shallow pocket. Similar top-out.
