Okay, so it's a little sadistic, but you begin on the starting holds of Fritz Bulge, then climb slightly uphill through the cave, transition in to the starting holds for the Fred Nicole sit-start, then top everything out. Physically punishing.
Start as for Fritz Bulge, climb left.

Every move is there. Somebody (other than Bernd and I) needs to come and check this line out. The initial moves are close to the ground, but fun. The last sequence of moves are heinous. It's strange: taken individually, none of the hand-movements are too insanely hard, but linking them will be another question. The rock could be cleaner in places, but that's an old story around here. Is it V9? V8? V10? No concrete idea yet. I propose at least V9, maybe harder, but time and ascents will tell.
I'm getting close. Anyone? Anyone?

Had a good go on this this thing earlier today. Worked out all the moves, but I agree, linking them is going to be pretty rough. Although the last sequence is definitely the crux, the low low start definitely makes the later moves all that more desperate. I'd say V9+ sounds about right but I'll probably have a better idea after a couple more sessions.
Wicked Problem though, super stoked on it.
