I have a love/hate relationship with this thing. Finally sent today, but only after I got a huge flapper from the undercling.

I agree Remo. Loved it today after finally sending-- more than a year after first trying it! Thanks for the beta Remo and Steve!! Usually hate it though...

I love this problem. It's just so pretty. Just a big tower with great features. Stoked to get it done :)

I heard from some friends that the upper left hand crimp chipped a little bit. I climbed it today and yup it's broken, but just a small piece. I didn't notice much difference and I think the grade is the same. Hopefully it doesn't break any more.

After four attempts this season I have it wired up to the last move. Hopefully I'll send it next year.

Off the start.

Anyone done this as a sit start? The link from the sit into the current start isn't particularly hard but does mean you have to catch a swing into the undercut and get the left foot up to the current starting hold. Adds a bit for sure.

Hey Tristan, yeah the sit gets done regularly. I think it's a solid V7 from the sit.

Sounds about right. Cool, I'll definitely try the thing with the sit when I'm next at the lake. Thanks for the response Remo!
