Dracula sure had some hard but delicate opening moves. And even some more trickiness at the end.

Check your grip is no ladder.

Harder than your husband

Haven't done them... but from the looks of em, I'd nominate Dracula 04, Samurai, Super Slab, and Swine Flew.

Zendebad
Oh man, he is messing that up. However, he is missing his left leg so that way would probably be harder for him. SCIN, just before spraying some beta for a climber doing a route the WRONG way.

I found Posse Whipped hard. In fact I couldn't do it. But you guys are welcome for the draws that hung on it for two months while I tried. :lol:

Despite what people think, there is technique to climbing steep jug hauls and crimp ladders. The technique of efficiency, resting, and pace.

indeed, i was convinced this blank-looking thing was a 5.10 one day and decided to jump on it b/c it looked so sweet (no i wasn't high). stick clipped to the 1st, then the 2nd, then the 3rd. then my ass left a bail biner and came down! :lol:

i can't wait until the day when i can come back and give this beautiful thing a real run for the money! :)
efil lanrete... i enjoy the sound, but in truth i find this seductively backward idea to be quite frightening
