Description 

Start sitting about 5 feet left of Border Patrol with a small, low, left horizontal crimp and a higher right crimpy sidepull. Move up and right deadpointing to two very crimpy sidepulls about six inches apart from each other and crank to the small huecos and then move right to finish as for Border Patrol.

This problem is much easier with other beta, which involves crossing left hand to the farther right of the two crimps (gaston) for the first move, then going to the crimpy huecos.

Gotta agree with Andy, but still very fun.

The V6 rating was the original straight-on beta. Easier beta has developed which puts the grade around V3+. Do it either way as you see fit.
