At the yearly Float The Boat comp, Tough Guy only counts if you head straight up from the crimp on the face...moving right at all is off limits (usually taped as off limits at the comps). Just saying that if this is the only version that counts in the comp, its really the only "version" of the problem...cheating out right drops the grade significantly and neuters this problem way too much.

This problem can be completed a number of ways, depending on how many features you use out to the right.

Climbing straight up the face makes Tough Guy much closer to a v4.

Using the one sloper/crimp to the right makes it a v3.

If you rely heavily on the right rail, it's probably more like a v2. Jan 20, 2014
