Match the undercling, then move to a left crimp, shoot for a far right crimp, and top out.

I love this problem, the top out was spicy the first time I did it- didn't have a spotter and you're parallel to the ground if you blow it. As for rating, this is definitely easier than Floater in my mind, so V4 seems right-ish. I sent Wedgie from the sit after just a day or two, and Floater took me forever.

Funny, this seemed a lot harder to me than Floater did. Maybe it was just the topout; I was alone without a pad that day.

The SDS for this problem is some really cool compression. Makes for a way more fulfilling climb than just starting on the undercling.
