Sit start on razor thin crimps, the right one being much better than the left, find feet that work for you and fire up and right to a good crimp in the shape of a pyramid...hold it...set your left foot and do a left hand deadpoint for a sloper knob on the lip. Match the lip, throw a right heel hook onto a crimp rail and rock over on one of the classiest mantels I've ever seen.

Actually, I was thinking of adding a start a few moves to the left, the moves would be really brutal.

First move felt heinously terrible. Felt harder than V7 to me...any tricky beta for the fist move?

I haven't been back to this boulder in 3 years and I dont remember much in the way of trickery. The first move is definitely the crux and I think the feet were fairly staggered (one much higher than the other). As I said, the grade was just my relative guess at the time.
