Description 

This little route is the left facing arete between "mistaken identity" and "another world" there has been maybe a little more then 3 ascents of it just because it gets over looked.
Start left hand on a sloping pinch and you right hand lower on the arete squeezing a nothing divot. Get a heel hook and magically levitate up to a right hand crimp. struggle to keep the heel and mantle into "another world"
I called it V6+ , but the reality is I don't know...

Did you heel hook out left or right?

I use a non-existent right heel. what would you hook with your left foot there is only a blank roof?. usually my left foot barely gets a small chip that is in the wrong direction.

I almost gave this climb zero stars, but I suppose it's not a complete pile. However, I cannot say that I recommend it at all.

I had to start from a really low squat because I couldn't reach the starting left hand hold from a true sit. Pretty hard to grade. My heel popped like 20 times before it finally stayed and I sent it. But, v6ish (plus or minus) seems about right.
