Sticking the second deadpoint on 'Ghetto Knowledge' (v8/9).

I haven't shared, but it's ridiculously finicky to the point of being random for me. It was all about how I hung off the left hand and how I grabbed it. I basically tried to pull the hold off the wall, then locked off as far as possible with my chin literally on the wall, and then deadpointed the last couple of inches to the hold, after that flip left hand, left foot obvious spot and go for it. My foot stayed for the second move, and I don't have much reach on you Troy, but it was the same for me. Actually a really good problem but elusive as hell. Still haven't done the trifecta of left hand gastons in the area (pace is the trick is so hard, thinking 9 on it actually, v9 gaston trifecta!), but definitely want to. Oct 13, 2016

If you want, email me and I'll share the link of the private video of me doing it. Unless Ian has already showed it to you. It's reachy, that's for sure, but so good. Oct 13, 2016

Got on this again yesterday. I'm at 5 sessions. Haven't been able to stick the first move again since the first session. Feels much harder than High Tech Issues for me. I am determined to get it though! Oct 13, 2016
