Had a chat with Norm today and we agreed to revise the grade. So far he's the only one to have sent (that I know of), and the few I know who have tried and failed (including myself) think this is pretty darn hard. We'll see how it stands up to future judgment. I guess that means somebody else should get out and try this thing... hint hint.

To be perfectly honest, I lost all motivation to work this line after about 1.5 attempts. The moves were hard, yes, but the cramped space, crappy rock, and thrutchy movement warded me off. Not my cup of tea, I guess. I thought there were much better lines nearby, but now that people have been givin' it on this problem, my interest is piqued. Maybe it's cleaned up?

Meh, the rock is still in the evolving phase, but all the holds you're gonna use (as far as I know) are solid. Personally, I kinda liked the space; it is easy to project by yourself, and it stays extra cool. To be sure, it won't be winning any beauty contests, but the movement is undeniably cool.
