A couple of pads and a decent spotter. The landing is okay (not great), but the boulder behind poses some threat if you come off wrong.

Description:

Start towards the left of the boulder on holds at roughly chest height (five feet?). Trends diagonal right at the top towards the top out. There is a crux, but fairly consistent difficulty through to the top, so once you get on, commit.

Chain Reactor is the low sit start which has been graded at V9; however. For some this adds some difficulty for the problem, but for many it doesn't seem to change the grade at all (height issue perhaps). I've included this information for reference; you can call it as you please.

3 out of 5 stars heels... bloody heels

I'm not really sure when I sent this, but I remember the heel hook giving me trouble for a while before it finally went.

I did it with the sit start, which felt more complete to me, but to each their own. Could be soft for the grade, but I can't make up my mind on that to be honest... it's been over a year since I did it.
