Took 4 or 5 tries to get this move. That said, I'd put it in the top 3 hardest moves I've ever actually done on rock. I don't know about V8, as I've never done one before, but it was tough and painful. After the second bolt, the route is a treat, and probably 11a or so. Great stuff.
This move is the most evil thing I have ever encountered! I will fallow in the tradition of the sandbag and call it 12a, but I have experienced V8's that are easier. I thought I was going to have to walk away...but the rock gods let me pull the move off with much death yodeling and muscle spazmatics.
