Definately harder than climbing in the groove and not sure what grade it would be on lead but an interesting eliminate nontheless

βeta: This and FB Right were both originally described as sharing the same finish, up the wall. If you limit yourself to just using the L and R crack respectively at the top, they are both harder than S.
