There is another version of this that starts to the right. Same basic beta, same grade... Also the landing zone is constantly changing due to the sand washing out with storms... May need to be creative with pads to protect a fall.

If this problem doesn't make you feel like a cat burglar, nothing will. The key is to latch the holds right at the apex of your jump. Jumping off a pad would take the fun out of this one, imo. My approach was to climb it in my approach shoes since this one really isn't dependent on precise footwork. With the sandy, flat landing, you really don't need a pad. Just don't fall off the exit moves!
