[Hide Comment] Given a V5 on rockclimbing.com in 2006 here's the beta from there, I believe from one of the original developers:

"SDS on the long diagonal ramp in the middle of the face. Press out right onto poor slopey holds. Heel hook helps."

Seemed harder than v5 to me when trying it last, but never sent, v7 definitely not out of the realm of possibility. May 28, 2019

[Hide Comment] I believe that is the beta for the direct variation. I start with right hand low on undercling, left on rail. Get a left heel hook, match rail, then bust right hang to bad crimp then left hand on poor slopey hold then make big right hand move to jug on far right side of boulder then finish on what I believe is a V2 Jun 2, 2019
