i've seen a lot of strong climbers try this and have seen a lot fail. If you do it the way the FA went i'd be hard pressed to call it anything less than V7.
This was supposed to be a gift to a RI native i'd been climbing with for a year or so. he was heading back and wanted an FA before he went. I'd seen this a year before and hadn't even touched it - thinking it was V0- not worth pulling on. We figured he'd bag this quick and we'd try to find something more stout later.
An afternoon later and he had to leave without either of us sending it (he ended up going knife fighter - a rarely done high ball to the left of bejeezus). I spend several days and finally ticked it. Just wish it was a little bit longer...

|Agreed, I never sent this dang thing. Was a total head-scratcher because, as Bill suggested, it didn't look that hard....|
