Don't know if anyone has done this yet:

Use starting holds of Wellspring, traverse right to crack of Spring Thing, finish on Spring Thing. V2?

That would variation. We haven't gone that direction we've done the opposite starting way around the corner and finishing on Wellspring.

If mine was the FA, I'd like to name it Unwound, V2(?).

Also forgot to mention I did another variation. Start on the ledge at the arete of Spring Roll, make a big move left to the crack of Spring Thing. Sprung, V1(?)

Thanks! Email me your name and I'll put you in as the FA for both!

There are some pretty fun dynos on this boulder. Starting on the lowest holds of Spring Thing (left hand on the side pull, right hand on the lower of the two v-shaped mini jugs) and using good feet you can just go right up for the top! I'd say it's something like v1. There's another dyno I was trying directly to the left of this, starting on the holds for Centerpiece (I think?). The hands in the seam are good but there aren't any really good feet and it's a farther distance to go. Didn't manage to stick this one, seems like it'd fall in the v4 range.
