also, we were unsure of the rating because of how specific the movement is, if you're good at mantling than it wont be bad, but if you're not comfy with that kind of biz, than its prolly harder. Just let me know. Jul 6, 2008

Good variation John. Again (as mentioned on "An Offer..."), obviously folks are either comfortable or not on the mantle/press, but for me it was an onsight while All in the Family took maybe 8 tries and working out the feet, etc. So I personally would not call it V6 (if All in Family is V5), but hey, they are different and both cool probs so who cares. While reaching up to the seam, I was thinking "I'm lichen it". Haha I am hilarious. Just ask me. Jul 25, 2008

Yo Sweatpants,

A Grigri and a nice static line, along with various amounts of engineering make getting those hard to reach spots a lot easier. A little more work, of course, but way better than a stickbrush. If you guys only knew... JJ Jul 25, 2008
