Description 

Start as for Polypucker, but instead of going up, traverse right down the diagonal crack, essentially doing Straight Razor in reverse. Finish at the finish of Midnight Lichen, either by launching straight to the good holds at the top or by using the mono and cranking to the arete.

Protection 

I just used one big pad at the end, but the ground is fairly rocky so another pad for the middle wouldn't hurt.

Did this link up today. I'm tall enough to crank straight to the finish jugs on Midnight Lichen with a hand high in the diagonal crack where Straight Razor starts, so this is probably harder than V7 if you're short. I didn't use the chunky holds in the crack, but they probably won't make a difference to the grade if you want to grab them. Probably been done before?

I would think this would be at least V8ish as either finishing method (Big Sucka or Midnight Lichen) are both V8 on their own. Seems like a cool problem though...

If you have to climb all the way down to the start hold of Straight Razor, it's probably more like V8. I hit the finishing jug with one hand (and a foot) on the Straight Razor start hold and one on the other good hold further along the diagonal crack, which feels a bit easier. I'll try to get a beta photo next time I'm out at the woods.
