Threw this video together of all the lines linking up into Toxic Avenger. Toxic Avenger is super short but don't let that turn you away from a great line. There are other variations if you want something longer and harder! youtube.com/watch?v=KGY0fLh… Apr 4, 2016
Cool history Tim Steele and Byron Shumpert shared with me is that the original line was a stand start (basically just the dyno move) that Greg Loh did and called it Bio Hazard with the grade V8; Tim told me that soon after, maybe even that season, the sit was added and dubbed Toxic Avenger V9.

Fun movement, cool footwork, tenuous.... all leading to a big awkward jump move.

If this problem were half again as long it would be a classic.

There used to be a bush at the base. It died after hundreds had fallen on it. Aug 11, 2013
