Description 

Thuggy fun! Or there's knarly crimpers if you'd rather use those. Either way unique climb with some powerful moves. Start in the break to the right of Iron Man and left of Bumble Bee/Heel-Toe. Grab each side of a triangle-like flake and move to crimpers. Either way establish on the edge of the roof and fire up left to a deadpoint before jugging to the finish

Location 

right of Iron Man and left of Bumble Bee/Heel-Toe

Protection 

1-2 pads

I'm not sure this is quite V5, at least compared to the V5s around it. A tough move off the ground is what guards the key to the top. A good warmup for the other lines on transformer boulder.

M.Ish if you found a way that was easier then v5 then props to you, but from your description it sounds like you mixed this one up with it's neighbor "Ironman". The first moves off the ground of "Decepticon" are definitely the mellowest of the route.
