No I didn't get on the project over near Hangman. I looked at it, but we were running out of daylight by the time we got over there as well as developing anemia from the blood loss with all the skeeters. Looks sweet! Next time... Jul 25, 2008

brilliant. glad you got on all these lines. The reason i based these ratings like this were as follows...
I thought godfather was more on the hard 4 side
I thought all in the family was more on the hard 5/6 side.
I thought that "an offer" was more physical and demanding through the middle. being it took me a couple goes where i onsighted godfather and also its a little less straight forward. (just my opinion)
As for "sleepin'" I gave it a 6 more based on overcompansating for my personal stregnth like i said earlier and also because my buddy Peter felt it was harder than "all in the family".

So those were my general reasonings with those two. I looovvvee that you reply with your thoughts. I think its something we really need to get consenses on grading for the area. The more we all pipe up, the more consistent all will be. I'm totally fine with changing the grades once a couple people chime in with thoughts.

As an extra thought... "get the hell outta dodge" is graded 5, i think its more like a 4... I think both problems are harder than that for sure. thoughts on that?

Also did u try "full execution" at all after you did hangman? thoughts? Jul 25, 2008

Good problem. I think if we're calling All in the Family V5 that this rig is less than that. I usually am bad at ratings, but tend to simply remember how many tries it took and how close I was to coming off during the send, and this was nowhere near as tough as "All in..." for me. Maybe about the same as the direct Godfather line? I realize everyone has their individual strengths however. Jul 25, 2008

totally agree. i tried to tread lightly... however everything seemd to be staying being as the cross/match on the seam about said break was essentially an assisted one arm. So that seems to be ok for know however the little pocketed top stuff will certainly break some. Were you there when it broke? that had to be crazy if you were was someone climbing on it when it broke etc? Jul 10, 2008

John last summer or the summer before the piece below the far right came off (A body size piece) that whole thing is going to come off soon its broke all the way around and is soft? CLIMB AT YOUR OWN RISK Jul 10, 2008
