I finally got the name of this and updated it, its actual name is Local Hero.

Start low to the right of the stand start with a right hand on the arrete and left hand on a tiny edge far out left. Make a quick move to an edge on the lip below the rail for the stand start, get a slopey hold with your right then climb into the stand start and finish.


Down to the left of Boomerang past the graffiti.

I was introduced to this as "Body Slam" V5. I would agree that it's more like a V4 once you get in the right position. May 27, 2017

With some circus tricks I wouldn't say its any harder than V4. Jul 11, 2015
I talked to someone yesterday who knew the actual name for this route (which I promptly forgot). I guess there is secret beta to the sit start that makes it more like a 4 or 5 although I did not see the beta. I guess this would mean there is no stand start? May 16, 2015

loved this line, remember working on this one with you Sam, if i remember, theres a dangerous rock right below the topout, but the topout is really easy Jan 23, 2015
Changed the name (from Shelf Problem) after talking to the guy who showed it to me. Jul 1, 2014
