8m. The technical wall just right of a short open corner, trending right via some thin flakes.

Exceedingly intricate to start, happily it eases off. A jolly fine problem.

One longish reach for a positive finger flake and you are on an MVS. I rarely onsight 5c and never this easily. So it must be 5b?

I thought the start was indeed exceedingly intricate, and the rest of it on fairly poor holds and sequency. E1 6a and highball V3 for me.

Really nice problem, but the second move off the ground takes some thinking, unless you're very tall perhaps? Worth attempting as a solo since the landing is OK and the top part is easy.
