This is an impressive effort by Eric Zschiesche. The blank looking face to left of Monster was an aid climb. Now, a balls out high ball boulder problem. It's not "git on it" but "GIT UP IT!!!!"
Stack up as many pads as ya got, and do not fall.

Just a few corrections... The Zipper is to the left of The Monster on the next section of rock over. It has one of the most tantalizing dynamic moves I have done at the lake. Even after Eric showed me the beta (which seemed unrealistic at best), it took a pretty big handful of tries to coil my core and release the snakes. Aside from Eric, Marcos Nunez has done it, and another guy whose name I forget. We all agreed it checked in at solid V8. That was a long time ago...

I remember a couple years ago hearing both Todd and Nate talking about how they were convinced that, with their beta, this thing was V6. I've heard at least one other person say that as well. Can't really say myself since i've never been on it.

Impressive send by Eric without pads. Hard moves but easier than other V8's that Eric has established.

Never forget the epic whipper Nate Emerson took on this at Todd's birthday challenge! Nate split the two spotters and talus surfed down the hill for 30ft!
