That dog got war'd. Junction talk. On a serious no...

Description 

This has an awkward start.

Begin with a left hand on a small crimp and a right hand on a sidepull/pinch... depending on your height, set up on one of the good foot holds. Pull up (don't cheat), hold it, and toss for the big hueco.... It is really the only hard move. Top out.

This can be done at as a sit start with the left hand in a two-finger pocket and right hand out to a positive crimp. Then fire up to the right hand dimpled pinch, that the stand start starts on. This would bump the grade to V5/6 or 6-, because the crux is this second move(a controlled lunge to the pinch), versus the stand start. Definitely worth doing.
