Sit-start is V6, stand-start is V4. Head up and left. Best problem of its grade in Happy Hunting Grounds.

The base must be affected by erosion. The "stand start" involved stacking two pads for me (5'11") and one pad for my partner (6'a lot").

For as long as I can remember, the "stand" start has always been a reach for me (6'), and since the low moves flow so nicely, I simply worked it from the sit, not the stand. This is a problem that is actually more awkward to stand-start than to sit-start, because you seem to be entering the problem at a weird transition.

I totally agree. I have no historical perspective for that erosion comment. I guess I was just assuming based on how awkward it felt.

The stand start has always been a stretch.

Stand start is a stretch? Where is the V4 stand start? On the sidepull and juggy crimp about 7ft up? And the V6 sit start is on the tiny crimps about waste height? What about the "middle way" stand start on the chest high left sidepull/crimp and either right undercling/sidepull crimp or further right sidepull. That seemed on the hard side of V4, but probably good. I can't wait to go back to it, I think I have good beta for the "mahayana start"...

I agree I feel like their is an intermediate start between the sit and REACHY stand start.. I am 5'8" and started easily with holds about chest height, but there were holds lower I could have sat down for, although it only added one move that didn't add much difficulty.

The right-hand crimp for the sit-start is visibly flexing. It's only going to be a matter of days...

Good call Andy. I just went up there this weekend and lo and behold, broken right hand crimp. Guess what though? It still goes and at the same grade. How lucky.
