First move to the sit-start.

Description 

To a Grave is a thought-provoking and exceptionally fun mini-highball. In all reality, it wouldn't be so scary if it weren't for the uneven landing. Still, it has some fun and committing moves from jugs, to crimps, to sloping crimps, to a tricky top-out. A few well-placed pads makes for a great fall.

The sit-start, which begins in the underbelly "rib-cage" of the boulder, bumps the grade up to V6 or V7, depending on wingspan.

Location 

Starts on a good jug on the left side of the face.

Protection 

Preferably a pad or two.

I originally gave this 1 or 2 stars and 5- for the stand, but the sit from the rib cage bumps it to a 6(?) and makes it way more fun. Go do it!

Tim is right. The sit makes things much, much better.
