The sit start variation to Osama doesn't use the triangular holds at all. Start at a pinch/sidepull and climb directly up the arete. The large features to the right are off for hands and feet. Use the underclings on the left face and then continue up Osama.

Great problem, though contrived. Definitely not v10 if you are >6' tall

The description should read "the large features to the LEFT aren't used at all."

Very height dependent for the grade. The route description is different now that the undercling to the left came off with the rest of the Pull Down Like DeJesus sloper rail. Although... I don't think the undercling was ever necessary for either Osama or the Sit.
