    So, the start is down and right of the Kind. Starts on a short crimp rail and does a left hand move to an improbable pinch. Hard move coming in with your right hand to an underclinging sidepull. Then fire into a decent hold on the Kind and finish. Two Pads. I don't think this is called the Kind sit start.

    I started on the slopey rail with a heel hook to the left. Moved right hand up to a crimp and walked my feet back under me. Made a left hand move to a slopey edge/pinch (crux). Then got right heel hook and came in left hand to an okay edge compression. Finally bumped left hand to a good hold on The Kind and continued up the line.
