Not sure how this will "fly" here ... but I do have two other techniques documented if there is interest which are accessible via video if you know where to look.

I am nearly 6' and a more technical climber than I am a "strong" climber ... I rely on my feet more than my back to boulder. Having done the boulder problem as described I would rate it closer to a v4 / v5.

I have seen shorter people with extremely strong backs, 5'4", do this problem a completely different way than I have proposed here.

Do not fear the blood ... if you work this long enough at the crux you will bleed at some point. It took me 1 hour and 25 attempts before this happened and I came back months later and sent it on my second attempt.

Yeah you're able to make a really long move there with the feet. I'm 5'6" and can't do that. I end up smearing a knee then a foot above your #16. I also completely agree that this in not a V2. At least a 3+.

The shorter person I mentioned with a really strong back smears the entire edge where it breaks ... different heights which is why I mentioned it for this beta picture.

Let me post up the other two I have documented this way for the climb, maybe one is closer to the beta you use :D

I would agree though even by coopers tough standards this is a v3+ for sure. But it is a really fun line either way ... just be careful of the sharp crystals on the sloping edge when doing the crux and it won't be too bad.

What is funnier is I felt like Mikey Likes It was so much easier than this even with the awkward middle crux.

Don't read if you don't want beta. This is my attempt at capturing climbing beta for future personal use.
