If it is the one I think you are referring to it is called Ginseng for Genius. Listed as a V8 in the Kemple guide, it starts on a decent chip for the left and and a sloper crimp for your right, and tosses up to the quartz hold, then top out? The problem has a rock at the start which makes getting to the sit start a little weird? Apr 22, 2013

What's the name of the 1 move wonder on the left side of the overhang that goes at V10? You pull on, throw to a pocket out right and then up move up to the lip. . . Apr 22, 2013
