Pressure sensitive is a variation on Full Wisdom that takes the word "sloper" to the full extent of the meaning. Climb wisdom until you find the obvious transition to the upper sloping rail covered with chalked hand smears (above and skipping the crimper crux of wisdom). Commit to the slippery slopes and use as much body tension as you can muster. Finish this sloping section and then do upper wisdom. If you want a harder finish, try doing Missile as an alternate finsih to this one! This is a super problem that is not often sent. Unique and technical!!

TOTAL sandbag at V8...IMHO. That grade would put this one on par with Cytogrinder V8, and there is No Way! Thanks for listening....

Just turned 60 the other day. Glad to here that people are giving Pressure Sensitive a shot (old Stanley Clark tune). This is one of the routes on my list to tick after 60.
