John, I have no idea on rating for sitting or standing. I posted the rating from what TJ said. Let me know if I need to add a rating for the sit start.

Not sure if it has gone from the sit. If it has, Josh Edwards would have been the one to have done it. The grade would be bumped up 1 or 2 cause if i remember correctly theres a semi dyno into a bad hold. i've stuck it once with alot of effort.
