Comments: Yeah, that other start is now called Flying Solo, V2. It's arguably one of the best problems in that range.

Comments: Much thanks Matt! The crux for me on this one came right after the underclings. Excellent climb.

Comments: This route was incredible. Didn't get it clean but figured out easier beta... (There's a nice incut crimper right after the crack to make that big move to the edge much more static.)

Comments: The sit start version feels like a 5 or 6. Look for a low and positive hold, right of the original start.

Comments: Also, the left arÍte in the photo... is it a V6 to the top out? I was able to get to the second vertical section and bailed due to height... never really tried for it.

Comments: The beginning is by far the crux...maybe V3 range.

Comments: Evidently this problem is much easier if you have the reach to throw for a big hold straight above the start... probably in the V1 range.
