Description 

From Mark Mercer, Probable FA'ist:
Not sure if it was an FA by now, but I sent this thing today! First from the stand on the two good close holds, then from the lower pocket and edge. Felt v10 from the low, maybe v9 from the stand (which is the better problem).
From the close holds I went left hand to a slopey pocket, right hand to the crimp above it, then bumped to the good mono up and right. Then jumped to a good hold up and left.
Traversed the lip a few feet before pressing it out because a dead tree is partially covering the topout.

Location 

Between Gravedigger and Leatherface. Either starts sitting/crouched on a RH vertical sloper rail and LH pocket or standing at a closely-spaced LH pocket and RH incut near face level.

Awesome! Nice work. That sequence of moves looks so different from what I tried. I almost thought it wouldn't go, but I don't think I even considered that mono you used. Cool to see it go down. I'll update the description. Your video description has the name as Grave Robber - is that right?

I believe that the person who got the FA on this is Brian Capps. If not, I know for a fact that Eric Widing sent this before Mark.
