This problem begins on Planet of the Apes but instead of getting the crimp with your left hand go to it with your right. Work your way left around the corner and get the rail feature with your left hand. The higher the better because the next move is a deadpoint dyno up and right although I have seen people do it static using an intermediate hold. Some people think this is easier than Planet of the Apes.

Amazing problem with a fun kneebar at the start. Landing is as safe as it gets. Got this problem but could not get Planet of the Apes right next to it.

If you don't do it with the dyno, then you're clever (and/or short). Not sure if it's actually a V7, but I thought it was considerably harder than Planet of the Apes. Other climbers in my group thought the opposite (height could be the deciding factor in this).
