Start on the horn from "All in the Family" go to seam or slopey crimp to the left, then up with left hand farther up and left to slopey crimp hold with a thumb catch, foot up near right hand and press up. go to small seam that runs along just under where rock turns vertical, match and up to the lip.

also, we were unsure of the rating because of how specific the movement is, if you're good at mantling than it wont be bad, but if you're not comfy with that kind of biz, than its prolly harder. Just let me know.

Good variation John. Again (as mentioned on "An Offer..."), obviously folks are either comfortable or not on the mantle/press, but for me it was an onsight while All in the Family took maybe 8 tries and working out the feet, etc. So I personally would not call it V6 (if All in Family is V5), but hey, they are different and both cool probs so who cares. While reaching up to the seam, I was thinking "I'm lichen it". Haha I am hilarious. Just ask me.

Napalm. Dries out the rock too, but then it's too hot to climb for a day or two. Heh.

Last summer I thought Get outta Dodge was V5, but after getting on it again yesterday, it seemed pretty easy. Pretty sure I am not that much stronger this year compared with last year, though confidence is up some. So I see where you came from on all these. At the gym I used to climb at most of the climbs finished by topping out in a manner similar to the Fishes, so maybe it's just a very familiar move for me, thus it feels pretty easy. All in the Family is much more strenuous, just like your Internet Predator that I am not as good at (and continue to struggle with!)...

Anyway, healthy discussions. And congrats on the new sends and problems, great additions to the park.

Just realized this is partially a response to your comments under An Offer He Couldn't Refuse also. Sorry for the cornfusion.

yeah i think these kinds of discussions are good for sure. i think its needed to really get baselines for the park. cause previously i think ratings have been pretty all over the place. sounds like you're still close on "I.P." good luck man. send that thing. i was actually going to go wed but couldnt get myself to do the drive. maybe next week. We all just have to keep uncovering new shit and deciding on grades of old shit. lol.

Yo Sweatpants,

A Grigri and a nice static line, along with various amounts of engineering make getting those hard to reach spots a lot easier. A little more work, of course, but way better than a stickbrush. If you guys only knew... JJ
