Allegory is too good to be true.

Sit start very low on the steep arête, right hand on a right facing rail, left on the big sloper. Use the point of rock at the base (no detached blocks) as the starting foot.

Bump up to a chunk on the arête, and toss for the jugs under the steepness. Continue up the arête to gain the huge lobe/point at the height of the overhang.

Continue through good hands to the highball finish.

Will probably settle on V4.
