Great moves in a scary position. I used two pads but there's no way I'd want to fall off the crux as there's a ledge to hit and a large rock at the bottom. Felt about V5/Font 6c but more like a route than a boulder problem. It avoids the aretes either side but still feels independent. Tried yesterday and also a couple of years ago.
