Description 

Climb the interesting left arete using pinches and slopers. Crux in the middle somewhere. Great holds on top allow a fun lip traverse. Start with right hand on a low pinch/slope and left on a shallow dish just below the arete holds.

Location 

Left side of the face. Downclimb using the tree.

The sit start for this is fun, too. Adds a grade or two.

I agree with the sit adding a grade or two, i'd say V2+

So I did the squat-start yesterday and it is way more fun than just doing a standing start. To actually do a sit-start, the left had would use a really bad crimp/pinch then a hard toss up. This would be much harder than V2.

Ok, on hearing that, you're right, the squat is far easier than the actual sit. Did the sit today, pretty powerful move off of two crimps to the knurled lip.

(I just wanted to say knurled)

Since I haven't gotten many V4's lately, I'd say its a v3+, starting with cheeks on the dirt.
