sorry, dude. I actually have not done it yet, but it does look really good.

At first glance it looks like a plain ol' lieback but it's got a sweet mix of beta. The Bloom gear suggestion is right on, though a #1 or #2 Camalot could place well in a square pod 15 feet up if you don't have the fifth 1.5 Friend. Regarding the suggested pro on this page, I think most people would want more #1 Friends than #2 (I took five #1 Friends and used four). I cleaned up the anchor tat on 4/3/10, too, so it should be good to go for a while.
