This is the problem. The ending hold(s) is/are slightly out of the picture, but just barely.

[Hide Comment] I added a low start adding 7 moves, start left hand underneath the roof on a sloping crimp, right hand on the opposing side on a small flat crimp, toe hook out right, bump right hand to a better crimp, one arm campus to a left hand crimp, match next to the left with the right, make a long pull to a right hand crimp, match with the left, make a long move to the right to join the first hold of X Chromosone, continue and finish all the way right on X Chromosone. The sit is called SPIRAL HELIX and the grade is around V10.
-Enjoy!

[Hide Comment] Not really seeing what makes this a 3 star climb? Holds are fun but boulder behind you is almost impossible to climb past without dabbing any part of your body, even without a pad. Oct 15, 2018
[Hide Comment] Such an amazing boulder. Even with the dab factor at the end.
