According to Peter Croft, the original problem begins by hand jamming the far-right crack and traversing leftwards to finish by hand jamming the far-left crack, hence the name “hand to hand combat.” Nothing is off-route, and the problem can go low under the roof feature at the crux or by using holds along the lip of the roof. Stopping short of the finishing crack will shave difficulty.
The Left to right version, starting with hands in the left crack and traversing to the right crack is quite a bit easier, probably more like V5.
