I have always found this to be VERY physical for the grade. Just my opinion...seems WAY harder than extreme unction. Anyone else agree?

The start is fairly easy with great stances for gear. Getting into the hand crack is cruxy and then you just have to fight the widening crack with bad feet. I didn't place anything bigger than .75 but I ran it out on top, too tired to place gear. Really pumpy, definitely harder than Unction.
Edit: bring a #2.

Really fun line with good jams most of the way. I used a 3 on the finish widening crack, you could use a 4 and protect really well for the final moves. Not necessarily more difficult than unction, just as pumpy but using jams.
