A 5 move eliminate problem that goes right up the west face between the "opposing aretes" on sharp holds (think cold weather). Start below the crack on a good hold for the left and go to a tiny sharp crimp up right. Lunge for a pinch, and move up right to the obvious edge and over the top. Other than for the start dont use any of the holds in the crack or on the corner by it, or over on the right arete. If it seems easy its because your wandering off to the sides. It sounds contrived but a straight up line in the middle on the bad holds is obvious. The only problem of difficulty in the park. V4? 5? Im not sure if anyone else has tried it so theres no consensus. Give it a shot.

4 out of 5 stars Thumbs

Followed the description and the title is right, I ripped my finger trying to get up on the crack the second time. Be careful.
