Perpetual Motion Machine

FA: Maybe me?
Michigan > Grand Ledge

Description

Basically just an extension of Suicide Machine. Start on the Ballerina undercling and climb right through low crimps to the circled flake jug (the end of Suicide Machine). From here, climb up and slightly right through a slopey edge, a bad dish, a pinch on the arete, then up to a mini bucket. From here, top out just left of Doug’s Roof. This is shown in red.  There’s a harder version/project (V10?) that skips the slopey right hand edge and dynos straight to the slopey dish and then tops out straight up through 2 underclings. This is shown in yellow. 
Suicide Machine is supposedly V9, but this whole line felt like V7 to me, so maybe split the difference?

Location

Start on Ballerina to the left of Doug’s Roof
