This move might be a bit reachy for some people

Description 

Start on a hollow sidepull flake. Reach up to an undercling crimp in the roof above your head, a jug, a long move, and a hard bump get you to the key hold. Tension and good footwork get you to the jugs. Keep calm because the jugs get smaller at the top.


Location 

About 20 feet left of Storm Pockets on the Storm Boulder. Starts on the hollow flake below a little roof.


Protection 

A couple pads and at least two competent spotters. The landing is good, but the topout is heady.

Would love to hear some opinions on the grade of this thing. I gave it an 8 based on... something... but I actually think it weighs in closer to 7. Don't want to unilaterally downgrade it though. Thoughts?

I'd say the grade is somewhere between v6 and v-impossible, depending on one's wingspan. I've got a long reach and it feels about v7 to me.

Based on other 8s in the area, would give it 7.

Def thought that this was true to the original grade. I do not have as long of a wingspan as most and i thought it felt like v8. However I could see how those moves would feel like v7 if one was to have a longer span. I would say V8 for some and V7 for others.
