It felt like a more natural line to start with hands matched on the sloper and a heel hook in the dish, never touching the boulder on the left. These are incredible moves and could be around V6 or V7.

Agree that the start should be on the two dishes at the bottom of the "ear," without touching the boulder on the left.

Yeah, starting with your feet on the other boulder make it way too easy. Start with your hands and feet as low as possible in the two dishes and then climb. That's the only way it's V7.
