Sit start

Description 

The problem begins as a two hand sit start. The crux is performing the first two moves. The lack of good foot holds forces a series of quick powerful moves. The key to climbing this problem is having your feet in the right position before going for the first move.

I think V1 is a pretty accurate rating for it. It's definitely not a V5 cuz i am no where close to a V5 climber, and I was able to top out on this.

I'm not sure which boulders across the road you are referring to but there are 2 others up above JPL. mountainproject.com/v/arroyo-s...

Not sure if these are the one's you are referring to.

V1 + at most so many more problems on this boulder, will post them as new routes soon, first started climbing on this boulder and have been here probably 50 times only living blocks away

Not v5. sit start is better for short people. feet aren't that bad. can be topped out without using the jugs before the finish.
