This is a really good crack problem. It starts out as an overhanging finger crack in a hallway, then you can either step off on the rock behind you or for full value, top out the easy 5.8 above. From the top, an easy corridor leads back down to the base. For extra value, sit start the problem, which provides a definite starting point, and bumps the grade to V9. There are many different interpretations of the stand start, with varying grades. This is a very fun, thin finger crack, bring tape.
A pad, though for the crux start you can just step back if you are going to fall, and after that a pad would be useless.
