1-2 pads, spotter.

The G-spot book calls this V8/9, I agree.

I disagree. It is just a little easier than Atomic Tick Fever (A solid V7). The crux felt just a tad easier than the crux for Atomic Tick Fever.

Solid V7. I've heard everything from V5 to V10....
I don't think it's harder than V7. Pretty sustained climbing all the way up.

The sit start used to be regarded as a light 9 or hard 8.... There was a hold that broke years ago that changed the problem significantly. The stand was always regarded as V6 which used to be considered hard.... This problem was done way before the invention of the bouldering pad.

The sit start is the boss! Great route. And yeah it is most definitely a V9 whether one considers it easy or difficult, that is if you do the sit start. Otherwise many consider it to be V6.
