    GB Arete starts from a sit, with an obvious righthand blocky pinch and a small lefthand sidepull. Not sure about the "two easy compression moves." This is the hardest V8 in the world.

    Super fun problem. Short and powerful.

    Supposedly, yesterday up in the park the large starting foot on this broke leaving behind a less usable and awkward facing new starting foot. Makes the first move out left to the first crimp more difficult. Hardest 8 in the world for real now? Maybe.
