Description 

The book lists these problems as one and as the same grade. They are not, so I'm breaking them into two listings. A couple of us cruised the left side, but ultimately gave up on the right version after more attempts than it took us to complete Gill's Double Clutch (V4) to the right of us.
From two crimps, climb up to a horizontal with a good match able hold just left of the vertical crack. Move up and left either to an intermediate thin crimp or directly to the better hold further up and left. Move to the horizontal above the problem.

Location 

Just above and left of the obvious blasting hole on the bulging corner at the left side of Doug's Roof. (See Beta Photo)
