4 out of 5 stars V5- or so?

My beta could be off but this feels really stiff for a V4 when starting on the horn undercling. It's fairly overhung and the first good hold past the crimp requires significant reach, precision, and body english (for someone around 5'9"). I used the small right crimp transitioning to the undercling handjam around the arete, and topped out with the left hand sloper. Bring a pad- the landing is angled downhill and has protruding rocks.
