A one move problem, but the mantle proves to be quite the move.

More difficult than it looks!

Probably a sandbag at .11a. Although the Fry guide recommends a "mantel or dyno" to complete this, I've never seen anyone perform the latter. I have seen more than one strong boulderer who routinely pull down V4s or harder get miserably shut down by this thing. Keep coming back to it. You'll eventually develop the muscles and body tension required to pull off this unique move.
