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.

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.
