HARD (but fun)!

Walk to the far left of the boulder to the overhanging arête. To the right of the arête at about chest height is a long thin crimp rail that forms a slight crescent.

To make this problem differ from the other variations a standard foot placement is used: Use the very low positive rail under the lower steep face for your right foot.

Two variations to this line:

1: Match the crescent crimp for the start and post a foot out right to pick up off the ground. Blast up to the distant overhead jug and traverse the lip up and right to the best opportunity to top out at a highpoint in the boulder.. Matching the thin crescent crimp makes this a v8.

2: Make use of the crescent crimp and the nice flake edge/crimp way out left to make the dyno easier and the problem then becomes a v7 (this beta came to light a year after the v8 start was done. still really cool!)
