I love this thing! Ever since I figured out how to do it, I do it every time I go to Castle Rock. Wouldn't call it V5 though.

I think if you use the hold behind the arete it's V4, if you use arete only it's V5.

had a ridiculous amount of fun on this one today. Way I did it felt V4ish (used hold behind arete), though it's definitely my style of problem. Gonna go back and see how it goes without that hold
