Sit Start. Both hands on the really small but obvious crimp rail. Go strait up left hand to another bad crimp (crux). Then do an easier move to a good right hand. Top out on the V0 jugs.
If you are facing Grotesque Old Woman, there is a rock directly behind you. Hop over this down into a small gully/trail. Take this down and around the boulder. The problem is on the back side, meaning your back will be facing the ocean when you find it.

If we're thinking of the same problem (the starting hold is a long, thin crimp), the first move is purdy hard. After that it's cake. I did a hard move up right to a pocket instead of a hard move up left, as it seemed like the right thing to do.
Maybe I'm crazy.
Anyway, I wouldn't call it anything other than V7. Short, hard, bouldery. Which makes sense, since it's a boulder-problem.
