The top out on "Grindstone" (V-4)

Description 

Start on thin overhead lips with smeary feet. Pull out to a goodish ledge from the roof and match the ledge, pull through again to the pockets on the outer side of the roofs edge.
Dyno up and over to the loaf-like boulder on top. (there is an intermediate sloper to lessen the dyno, but it is still a dynamic move). hit the seam behind the loaf and do the balancy mantle move to top out.

Location
