Starts on same 2 low crimps as So Dope, moves up to match on sloper, and then straight up face. Given V8 originally, some new beta makes it some easier. Ian's original beta is still very hard.

Travis, Ian and I had a little session on this. Trav and I couldn't repeat the original beta in the heat/humidity, but we found some new beta that was a little easier. Cool problem.

I have given it 2 ratings, since one is Ian's for the original hard beta, the second is the cheater's way up. :)

I flashed this thing with Ian's beta. Think 7 is suitable.
