Classic one-move problem but it is a good one. I never pass up doing it whenever I am in the neighborhood.

Soon it's fun to see how high up on the jug you can reach. once you shred your hand failing to stick it, time to quit.

Nice to hear from you, Jake. Have you tried Reverse Pete's?

nope.. never appealed to me. i didn't even like Pete's but was too stubborn to stop trying. and even then used alternative hold beta.

Am I the only one who finds this much harder than V2? Took me far more tries to get this one-move-wonder than it did to get Try Again. Could just be me...

If you aren't very flexible (have trouble getting your left foot up to the foothold) then it will feel harder.

I agree it's pretty stiff. A friend of mine who does v10 took two sessions to send this thing. I personally love it, the Dyno is much more dramatic for me than other people because I'm 4'9!

There is a crimp on the sloper that is almost nonexistent, but it helped me with the dyno.
