This problem was listed as a V4 in the guide I was using. A long sequence of great moves on positive, sculpted holds leads to a tricky, slopey mantel.

Yeah, that topout was full on. The temperature was 30 degrees Fahrenheit and I completed the problem first try, so I think you might be right about the grade. I remember being 99% sure I was going to blow the mantel.

I've even heard my stingier south eastern buddies call this V3. Good old southeastern sandbaggery.

V3 is a pretty harsh analysis of a problem that requires a massive heel hook while matching onto on a not very friendly sloper to top out. The rest of it is a V3.
