Goes straight up, no clue on the grade.

Description 

Go straight up starting in the crack half way up the center of the front side that cuts over to the right. It has a very thin start up to a pretty solid hold about 2/3 of the way up the center.

If you want beta on this one, there is a left and right hand in the crack that will do the job. You have a fairly solid left foot and two options for the right, the higher of the two is smaller but bites better. from there you will barn door if you go for the next right hand hold first so you need to pull the side pinch left, then the right out a little way and up with the left to the huge hold.

Protection 

Pads and a spotter.

as far as I know this still has not been done haha we used the "assrocket" technique one night climbing in the pitch black and I sent it with assistance on the dyno haha but its a huge move from tiny holds...I"d be interested to see what other opinions of this difficulty are or if anyone has done it.

Hahaha, I should change the name to "Ass Rocket", you have reach to spare and it was a stretch for you (even with the game of grab ass) so maybe this isn't even possible for anybody that doesn't look like a Tim Burton character.
