This one is a one move wonder but deserves four stars. Use the sloping slot as an under cling or crimp to gain the left ledge. Match the hand, right foot high up, and... mantle in the sky.

Wouldn't really call it a "one move wonder" per say .... Start left on crimpers in the crack, trend right and Gain the Jug w/ matched hands, hike right leg up to sidepull and take a deep breath. Pull as far up as possible, utilizing that right foot (she's chossy) as much as u can. Place right hand I between legs and mantle el jugO. Left hand up to nothing, some fancy footwork or a knee and balance to the top. V4 truly a mantle in the sky

The problem is a one move wonder and probably doesn't deserve a V3+.

Not a one move wonder. Good problem. Fair at V3.
