Gatineau Special is to the left of Ken's Super Sla...


Start low to the left of Ken's Super Slab on a low undercling and power out and right to some slopey crimps before topping out on the slab. Pay attention to your feet on the starting moves because it feels darn near impossible if you don't place them correctly. The undercling move is almost all bicep - felt like my left bicep was gonna tear.

I think this problem is a tad harder if you are tall due to the low sit start, ass-dragging involved. That said, this should be the benchmark V6 for the area IMO...
