I though I remember supertopo calling this thing V4? It always seemed much easier than that, V2 or 3 seems more consistent with castle rock standards anyway... good fun.

originally rated 5.10+ I believe in the Jensen guidebook. Fun problem. Arechiga showed me the extension one day. The extension is contrived to keep the big feet off but it does add pump and spice.
