|Nice problem. The pockets are definitely not monos, and one of them is more like a crimp than a pocket, but they're still cool and unusual features (especially for NE granite). There are also decent holds on the arete below the key spot. Most of the difficulty of the problems lies in committing to the last move.|

While the committing last move is definitely the mental crux, this problem is still physically challenging and definitely deserving of the v6 grade (on the harder side in my opinion). It climbs more like a route, with no real defined crux, but lots of sustained difficulty.
Either way, it's an excellent climb and worth doing if you can confidently climb that grade.
