A V12 sit-start exists for this problem as well. Mar 31, 2008

The guidebook says to start both hands in the right crack... Which is wicked hard standing on one pad (maybe V9?). It seems that rather than trying hard, climbers have turned to stacking a pile of pads to reach a wonderful left hand gaston... and then calling the problem soft.

That being said, starting with both hands in the crack (per the guide) from a reasonable standing height is awkward and unnatural. A better start to get closer to earning a legitimate 9 points would be starting with left hand in the left crack, right in the right crack (like Twin Cracks' start). Mar 12, 2018
