WAS is without a doubt one of the finest V8s in Leavenworth. It's tall enough to make you aware of the height, but not so tall that a fall from the lip is overly dangerous. All the same, it's intimidating at the crux.
Start by smear-jumping your way up to the giant hueco, then move out left and up the arete before reaching the crux topout moves. Although the height keeps you on your toes (or heels, as the case may be...) don't be afraid to let yourself fly.

A good spotter and a couple of well-placed pads will definitely help your confidence here.
