Grab high slopers and mantel/grovel into the beautiful scoop with nasty slopers and a slippery heel hook, snagging the flake before the foot blows and sends you flying. Insecure, spooky and rad. Starting from the sharp crimps below the scoop is V9.
Just outside the "cave" on the large boulder is a high scoop. Mantel it.
A pad and spotters to keep you from splitting your skull on the boulder behind.
Praying that heel doesn't slip...
Mantle (my own weird beta).

The Sit start didnt feel too difficult. I have not climbed a v9 before, but this felt pretty soft. I felt it was more appropriate around the grade of 7-8
