Hey Teresa, historically, the good upper hold is not in! so your boyfriend flashed something around 6b! I know it seems weird but that's some knowledge I've got from old bleausards. That said, I understand you, it's a tough mouve and it also took me a while to figure it out. Come back fresh and you'll do it!!! It really starts 2 hands in the crack, then move to the right and use the roundy jug: and you have to do a mouve that give you abs pain for a few days afterwards to do the original 7a. Be strong, you'll get it next time!!
Here is the bleau.info description: "Sitstart in the middle with a two hands on the low ledge and a heelhook on it and exit to the right via the summit with a pinch and slopers."
