[Hide Comment] felt like V4-V6... i guess it felt harder than Temperance? Give it a go and let us know. Apr 14, 2012

[Hide Comment] I'm thinking on the harder side of that range, though I have only done the stand version so far. It seems quite a bit harder than Temperance to me, though if you are a big compression guy it may not... a really fun burly problem. Nice job, Marc. Apr 14, 2012

[Hide Comment] VERY cool line. This definitely needs to be promoted/hyped more because IMO its one of the best 5's in RI.

Just to clarify, the project next to it starts on the right hand pinch/ledge of porcelain hook slide and goes up right into some microscopic crimp undercling? May 12, 2015

[Hide Comment] its worth noting maxx that the stand start is also undone to the project. May 13, 2015

[Hide Comment] Yup, the starting traverse is not very tough, just starts the pump. The hard part is in the middle, the transition onto the lower angle face. May 13, 2015

[Hide Comment] Thanks Mark and Dana! The move up to that crimpy undercling seems wicked heinous. Overall I wasn't too psyched about the line. Seems hard but not necessarily fun or inspiring especially when seated right next to PHS. Oh well, maybe next time I'm down that way I'll give it a few burns. Thanks for the schematic! May 31, 2015
