Dobbe you sandbagger. A witness exists but his identity will remain a secret for his own protection. Sweaty I vow to take no more sideways vids. Thanks for the props guys this one was a big one for me, I guess now I should probably start trying SV... Mar 17, 2010

Ryan if a tree falls in the wood and no one is there to hear it, did it make a sound? With out Remo or I there to confirm this your going to have to wait to add it to your 8a card. I'm sure the next 95 high humidity day we'll be able to make it out for you. Mar 17, 2010

I'm starting to get concerned that I might be making Dobbe look too good. A new sideways vid of Dobbe coming soon... Dec 18, 2009

Sideways video's rule!!!!! I'm just keeping my computer on it's side from now on in hopes that you come out with another video or two. Also, you succeeded at making Dobbe look like a million bucks again. What's your secret? Just amazing. Dec 17, 2009

Funny, this must be a preferred style thing. H.E. took me a handful of tries. Sans spotter I sent in about 1.5hrs. Strong men I didn't get until my second day on it, and a ton of tries. Apr 8, 2009

Nice work Sweaty! I also took more time to do Highly executed the first time then SMAC but offer this as an idea, we just got strong pro. Two of the best here or anywhere. Apr 8, 2009

FINALLY! Took forever. I think this is plenty harder than 'Strong Men' for me. This took like 50 times falling at the very end prolly well over 100 tries and 'Strong Men' took me 8 and a little less than an hour... 7+ for this and regular 7 for S.M.?.. Apr 8, 2009

The friction was so perfect today, love this boulder. I agree with Dobbe, this felt harder than Illusions. Nov 18, 2008
