Description 

Start on the snout on the right side northwest face of the rock. Move left on a series of shelfs until they disappear. Then use the slabby top of the rock for hands as you continue left. The feet start to get worse unti you finally reach the tail, where a mantle finishes the problem.

You may also chose to continue traversing around the corner and finish on 'Back and Forth' (V0+) but that makes for a much less safe finish.

Keeping your hands below the slab on the traverse probably ups the grade to V5.

Protection 

Hard landing, but you're so close to the ground you dont even need a pad!
