It's in the guidebook

I finally checked the guidebook at the gym, but it doesn't look like the climb I was shown is described in the book as it neither starts on a chest high edge or a stand start. The V5 in this picture starts down in the crack, kind of where Left Ling-Chi is said to start in the book. Anyways, we should start naming these Unnamed climbs...

Oh I see, did you climb left into the unnamed V4 (the warmup that goes up the dihedral), or right into Cadillac King V6? Or did you do something else?

The temple is a very chaotic wall to accurately document, many of the lines require a precise/contrived description of holds which are on and those that are not. I definitely agree that all the problems should have names. The temple, as you know, got developed by strong climbers who were not interested in V5s, hence the lack of naming.
