Sit start at the blunt arete. Move up and left to finish Face Stand. A stand start can be done at V2.

Very enjoyable problem. Maybe a bit easier than 7. It went pretty easily for me, first try, though I had done the stand up before. I think it lends its self to my scrunchy style of climbing, so may be easier for short people. I could get my feet up under me. I did notice that after this and trying the link into Quartz Face a few times I was beat for the rest of the day, so maybe I was lucky.

Man, after over ten years of trying this route from time to time the one pad butt on the ground sit still feels on the moon, and i'm feeling in good shape of late. That's why I passed off the Fa to mike, because I could not add the one move to the low squat I had done. Joe, we are similar in height, what was your send beta?

I started right hand on the lowest sidepull and left hand on the bigger flat hold. Had my foot way out left on a small chip. Pulled on and got left hand on an undercling, hiked my left foot onto the flat hold and then went right hand, from there it was pretty straightforward. I couldn't do it with both hands on the two arete holds so kind of came up with some alternative beta...

Got this over the weekend. Definitely easier for the shorties! Super fun.
