The traverse moves from right to left to join Zigzag. Tiny holds, brick hard.

More of a squat unless you start on stacked pads or have real long arms. As long as you start with your left foot on the micro edges it doesn't really matter if you start sitting or standing. The crux is switching feet. A bit contrived but a nice problem anyway.

Agree with Luke. Squat, sit, stand. Doesn't matter. Deadpointing to the mono and then switching the feet is the crux. The moves after that stay hard and insecure to the end.

This climb is aesthetically beautiful. It doesn't climb quite as well as it looks. The feet are terrible for the most part and the mono destroys your skin if you fall on it. Which you will. Many times.

But, for some reason, I love it dearly. Definitely v9, perhaps even a little bit harder.
