Description 

Starts on the obvious jug; a true sportsman avoids using the detached blocks for feet. From there, big moves on good holds with technical footwork lead you to a desperate and burly lip encounter.

A sit start can be done that starts on an undercling jug at the back right of the cave, and climbs through two weird holds in chossy rock. Using the block for your feet makes it about V6, avoiding the block is annoying and probably V7

The sit start on the undercling without the foot block is fun. I found it to be v6-7ish. It is not too awkward with the right beta. It is v8ish if you avoid the big right hand undercling.
