SAL crimping down on Potato Chips.
Overhanging and crimpy. Nothing too technical---nice and straight-forward climbing on good holds with a safe top-out and good landing.
Right of center, straight up.

Thin Start, but with increasingly deeper crimps. Very finger intensive! Classic Kraft Boulders Problem. Felt harder than a V2 though... maybe V2/3?

V2/V3 move off the ground but eases up right after that to slightly deeper crimpers. Fun and Short. I think V2 is a valid rating.

The lower you start,the harder it is. Starting with at least one hand on the good horizontal incut at about 6' is the "original" start, me thinks and puts it at about V2+
Starting with the next 2 holds down and then moving a hand to that hold makes it V3.
Starting as low as possible (still not a SDS), with your left on a pretty small hold down and left, and your right on the lowest hold on the "main line"of holds such that you now must make 2 or 3 moves to the original starting hold puts it into solid V4/V5- territory. Those things are small and painful. All the holds are now quite polished, so extra crimping power is needed to make up for loss of friction.
