Max on Resident Evil

Description 

One of the greats at Area 51, and not to be missed if you're climbing at this level.

Start on the small holds to the right of Black Lung and bump right into the horizontal crack (the big jug on the far right side of the crack is off apparently, and knocks the grade down a bit if you care about that sort of thing). Make a big move up to the sharp crimps above and then make a pretty desperate move to the 'starfish' at the top.

The crux for me was either campusing or using a funky heel hook to match in the crack, although the deadpoints at the top are troublesome for others.

Location 

Just to the right of Black Lung on the main boulder.

Anyone know the original line? I know the original start, but I heard the ending was different as well. I want to do the problem legit, since the new way is really soft

My understanding is that original finish was to go straight up to the large pocket/slot feature that is to the left of the finishing holds of 'Stand Up' (basically to the left of the 'starfish' hold) and to not use any of the holds on 'Stand Up'. Starting the original way and finishing the original way was given v11 in the black Utah bouldering guide.
