Description 

Start directly to the left of Enlightenment. Stand Start on two holds at chest height. A right hand sidepull, pockety fingerlock thing, and a left hand pinch. Hard move going left to a pinch, go right to a sloper, then duckbill crimp, then top out. Two topouts are often done. If you traverse right into enlightenment, it feels morelike v6, but the original way stays straight, and avoids all the holds on enlightenment. This way probably clocks in around v7.

Location 

start to the right of a tree and left of Enlightenment

Topping out straight up like I did (not cutting right to enlightenment)makes this thing feel like a V7. Cutting right definitely makes it feel soft.
