Just to be clear, man made long ago by the quarrymen, not be the FA'er....

Almost had this a while back. Fell from the gaston? Good thing we had like 3 pads and 2 spotters that day.

Some further beta for this problem:

V4: stand start on block
V7: stand start from ground
V9: direct sit start from ground
V9: stand start from ground and climb face to right of arete without using the arete
