Given the smearing and slopers on this problem, it's much easier in cool weather. If you're getting bouted (like I did the first time I tried it in 80 degree temps) and feel like it's a big sandbag, come back on a cool day. I still think it's a little harder than rated, probably V1.

Getting established on the problem is the hardest part. Weird moves.

Harder if you're short. All the taller people seemed to have no prob, while the shorter struggled to reach anything good after standing off the high foot.

Not reachy but definitely requires good body english and rubber trust.
