Oh no, this was around long before John came along.
I recall Gary showing it to me around '77.
V8 ? No way...

I seem to recall being told it was something like V6? and maybe V5 from the stand but I've never really tried it so I don't know.

I have been doing a lot of hard stuff in Boulder Canyon and I drove back to NM the other day and did this boulder prob. The key crimp was broke off and way small now. I would call this a soft V8 but still an eight and a must do if you like to rock climb!
