The crux of this problem is not having a local child fall on you.

Slightly easier than the claimed V5!

I did it also with my left foot where the right foot of the pictured climber and my right foot on small foothold below the borehole (filled in now). Then I balanced to left and reached the crimps (as the climber on picture) and straight to the top. Is that OK? Or the only considered as valid is closer to the left arÍte?

Doesn't worry me either way - how difficult did you think your problem was?

Here it is how I do it: this is start position (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mloskot/3837571871/) and this is second position (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mloskot/3838364422/).
I would grade it to V3 or a bit more but not less, unless I have rubbish experience on that kind of rock, possible ;-)
