Description

Start as for Tick Tick Boom but after the first move go left onto the face and follow crimps to the top utilizing a key heel hook. The final toss to the lip should not be taken lightly, as it has spit off many who have tried the problem and may be the crux. If you stay on the right side of the face its around V6, and if you cross over more left its more like V7, most people have done the V6 version lately.

I did it both ways and they both feel about V6. Pick your poison - easier moves to get to the last crimp left handed with a hard throw to the lip or a hard move to get he last crimp right handed and an easy move to the lip. Sep 27, 2012
