Is the starting hand match the edge that the guy in the picture has his left foot on? If so, there are some fun sit start variations (see photo). The easiest would be both hands on B and feet on F, then matching hands on A. The hardest I could do was left hand on sidepull D, right hand on undercling E, left foot on F and right foot flagging. I think this would add to the difficulty of the problem, probably V3. I'm sure others could do more difficult starts, like both hands on the undercling, which seemed quite hard. It is a little cramped with the other boulder hanging over on the left, but still fun.

That's rad! I didn't even notice those holds there! Good work.
