Description 

So the right of the crack where the sds for Sniper Games starts there is a steep wall with several single pad sidepulls. You will see a rad left hand pinch and some cool edges. Sit down, high left side pull and slightly lower right side pull, whatever feet work for you, then fire up to the slotted and rounded good incut hold. Top out through the crack with sidepulls.

Location 

right side of steep wall.. when sitting you will have a block over your right shoulder behind you.

We were able to do this from a sit, but not as low as you describe. Felt about V7ish. Sit down, high left side pull and slightly lower right side pull, whatever feet work for you, then fire up to the slotted and rounded good incut hold. Top out through the crack with sidepulls.

Got a name you would like to call it, Bryan? Also, date and anyone else to list on the FA?

Shann Aharon and I were able to do this problem as described as the project, not sure if this adds anything in regards to where Bryan started the problem... Either way, fun and hard. felt V7 from low start. How about a name of "Point Blank"
