Beta anyone?  I can get established left hand high and right a bit lower but am stuck there...  High feet?  Am I missing something?  Don't be so weak?   <br /> <br />I guess I was assuming I want to move to the dish near the top with right hand...(?)

I have a love/hate relationship with this thing. Finally sent today, but only after I got a huge flapper from the undercling.

I agree Remo. Loved it today after finally sending-- more than a year after first trying it! Thanks for the beta Remo and Steve!!

I love this problem. It's just so pretty. Just a big tower with great features. Stoked to get it done :)

I heard from some friends that the upper left hand crimp chipped a little bit. I climbed it today and yup it's broken, but just a small piece. I didn't notice much difference and I think the grade is the same. Hopefully it doesn't break any more.

After four attempts this season I have it wired up to the last move. Hopefully I'll send it next year.
