If you head straight up from the climber in the photo the problem is called either Broken Sword or Swordfighter. Anyone else with another name from back in the day feel free to chime in. Another variant heads left along the obvious rail system and tops out left. Both are fun.

Sent the line that heads left one time. I kinda feel like that could be close to V3-V4 also? Maybe not, but it's got a couple thin, footless moves that have kept me from sending it again. Super challenging start and really fun, long reach for the topout to the left to a pretty nice slopey pocket.

This problem is just around the corner (to the left/ southeast of switchfoot). If you aren't disgusted by the thought of an eliminate problem, this one is well worth a try - Start with matched hands on the linear crimp to the left of (and partially obscured by) the climber's chest in the photo. From there you get just the holds he's using in the photo, and then the crimps up above. Any feet you can find are fair game. V4.
The climber to the right is inspecting the sit start for switchfoot.
