sooooo this thing is pretty hard... I can pull on the moves but can't actually do any of them yet... one day! long-term proj!

Buttermilker V13 8B  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Cave Area
Utter perfection. This problem is a thing of pure beauty. Super hard! Start seated matched on a good sidepull and trend right through amazing slopey compression moves requiring sustained strong body tension and cool careful footwork. There are crystals available for those who prefer microcrimps to slopers.Featured in Dosage Vol. 1 and there are now numerous accent videos on the web....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
