This is a very dynamic problem!

Start on a left-leaning sidepull and make a move out left to a sloping pocket. Set-up your feet high and make a crazy big move to a small, right-leaning crimp. This is a really hard, low percentage move.


This is the blue route in picture.

This line has positive hands and a definite crux and could be harder/height-dependent, but there are higher feet that a taller person would avoid, so it might not affect the grade too much. Either way, this is no harder than V6.

I agree with your grade, definitely with your height/span. However, one of the purposes of MP is consensus grading, versus the guidebook format, reliant on one person's opinion. For me, I would say V5ish...but like I said, it is slightly height-dependent. Having climbed in the canyon for 20 years and establishing problems all over Grand Valley, my opinion is still just that, as is yours. As an admin for MP, thanks for providing feedback, and it was nice to briefly meet you.
