The Hit V8. Merkava sit-starts in the cave adding ...

Description 

This problem takes a direct start into the Jardines classic, The Hit. Sit-start left hand on a sloping bobble on the arete, right hand on a sloping under-cling at the base of the over-hang. Reach up and over with your right hand to an in-cut crimp above your left hand, left hand to a crimp directly above right, set your left foot into a quartz spike and reach out right to gain the small chicken-head hold inside the over-hang. Shift your left hand from the crimp into the side-pull (all in the one hold), reset your feet to the starting foot holds of The Hit and dyno out right to the sloper of The Hit. The crux is sucking your body in as you do for the The Hit and shifting your left hand into the starting under-cling pinch. Hold the swing and finish off as The Hit.

The Jardines 

Merkava and The Hit are on the G-Spot boulder at Jardines just over the boundary fence.
