Veyron Arete, FA Nic. Oblobja


This is a project Jim Merli has been looking at for years. No one has yet done it. As far as we know....

Nic Oklobjzia has made the first send of this long-looked at line on Oct. 30th, 2010. He claims a difficulty rating around v10. Go forth and repeat!

Not sure if Jim cleaned it or not but I do know that Brian Camp came excruciatingly close to doing this on his first day. Suprised all you strong MN kids don't work on this more.

there is a SDS for this problem. pi did it yesterday (10/30/2012). he said that while the SDS doesn't change the grade of the original problem, it is a more logical start.
