I got on this today and I always stood at the middle of the crack and went straight up... I always thought thats how it went cuz it says john's stand start. also it didn't quite feel v4 to me... am I missing something? I go literally strait up from the fingerlock on hobbit hole

Climbed this today with the crimp on hobbit hole as a left start hand and my right resting in the crack as a sloper. Got a foot on a hobbit direct starting hold and crimped to the top. I may be missing something but with that beta it felt easier than edges. It felt significantly easier than hobbit direct. What do you guys think about the grade? As usual the climb was pretty good quality

There's always been confusion on this thing, but there are two versions... the easier one, which starts in the fingerlock and climbs straight up without using anything near Hobbit Direct, or the harder one which starts the same and moves slightly right to a tiny crimp and balances straight up the face.

Thanks for clearing that up bryce. I assumed that I had been doing something wrong beta wise. Maybe I'll come back to it one day but I had looked at those other sets of beta and they just didn't seem to be as natural or fun looking. It is probably because the real beta is hard lol
