Description 

Initially an attempt on the Project V8 (#3 in photo), ended up following a great line of its own over the roof. Sit start matched at the lowest point and move up and slightly left, gaining an OK crimp under the roof (crux). Move out to the jug from General Zod (#1 in photo) and throw to lip, finishing (based on photo) left of Man of Steel (#2 in photo).

Location 

Starts below #3 in the beta photo, and then moves up and left, finishing between #1 and #2.

Protection 

Several pads and ideally two spotters. The move to the top out can swing the climber well away from the boulder.

I sent a fun link up to this problem. Sit start at the far right arete (Jug or not, Ja-el start) and traverses left on jugs all the way into Flex Luther. Goes around v7+. It's essentially Speeding Bullet but links into Flex Luther instead of Man of Steel.
