Description 

This is a really quality little problem and is the most natural sit start for Clandestine Service. Sit start on the side-pull jug for Secret Agent and work left and up using huge feet through a finicky small two finger pocket and the nice left hand low slot. Move up through small holds to an easy but slopey mantle.

There is a good chance that this problem is incredibly finger size dependent. If your fingers are very slender this may be casual, if thick then it may be near impossible. Let us know what you think!

Definitely fun, definitely left marks from the pocket. Overall, the problem is high quality, and a must do. I have "slender fingers", so this problem was less about the pocket and more about the high reach for the top out.
