5 out of 5 stars Right variation

v7/v8. I've heard different things about the rating on this climb. I'm too short to do the left variation, but watching other people climb it and feeling the holds, the right variation seems just as hard as the left, just completely different.
The left does an awkward bump from a really good undercling and decent feet.
The right does a heinous lockoff from a sharp crimp and bad feet.
