Off the bigger of the two side pulls (RH) easier than V8

Off the RH crimp and closer of the two sidepulls, straight to the good finger jug: 6c+/7a max. Still pleased to get it mind!

Off the smaller of the poddy sidepulls and a LH crimp. Straight up to the decent edges. Not 7b.

Directly up from the left hand side, this approach seemed much lower than the grade.

Got the fingers warm! 6c+ max

Did this two ways. First starting with RH on an undercut/sidepull just left of the bog slopey sidepull which felt the logical way to do it but definitely wasn't 7b...maybe 6c+? Then did it starting RH on the big slopey sidepull which was a lot harder.

Think a few people are doing this from the left,bout 7A.The direct line from pod RH and sidepull LH is definitely 7B.
