Description:

Great route and the far end of the area that climbs out a roof (as usual in hueco) that then launches from two crimps to a decent albeit small hold. [alternate beta: climb out the good starting jugs. Get a knee-bar in the big hueco while your right hand is crimping on the square block. Then use the knee bar to turn the left hand into an undercling in the big hueco. Use the undercling to stand up and snag the high crimp with the right hand. peace out, tim.]

I thought this problem to be somewhat soft for the grade. More like V4-.
