Topping out with heel

Description 

Yes, I know Greene and Russo give it V4. It's certainly fun but not V4. Clamber down to a sitting position between the trees on either side of the problem under the overhanging back side of the Satellite #2 boulder. Start with your arms buried in the face-level crack to your left and a few good foot jams to your right now climb, crimp and jam your way up to the top out.

Location 

Between two trees growing behind the Satellite #2 boulder not far from where it abuts the Behemoth boulder. (See Beta Photo)

Protection 

Pad.

this is a hard v3... I would say for someone getting on it for the first time and figuring out the beta it feels more like a v4. whatever the grade, it's a sweet problem

I see a line that uses holds that are essentially right behind where the tree used to be.. is that a different climb?
