This is a classic problem on a slightly overhanging face.
Sit-start with left hand in an undercling pocket, right hand on a small crimp pocket. Do a long powerful cross move to a bad, sloping crimp. Move your left hand to a very small/very sharp crimp. Next is a good right hand sloper followed by a decent crimp rail. From the rail, move to a tiny incut crimp and move to the top. It has an easy top-out.
This is on the boulder that faces away from the road.

Could be V8 or V9. It seems about as hard or maybe harder than Worst Case Scenario at Joe's, But most people call that soft V9. It doesn't feel 2 grades easier than Beyond Life though, which has been called solid/hard V10.
More ascents should even it out.
EDIT: I went back and sent it again and got some more people on it. I feel pretty confident with V9.
