yep, it does take a certain technique to climb crap. and jumping is hard.
I see they are still lopping off mountains in Eastern Kentucky. Electricity isn't cheap.

Rely on the mini-dihedral for your left foot.

Thanks Meadows. do you go left hand pocket to right hand on mini-dihedral(sort of pinch with a small pocket), then cross left to shallow pocket, right to good undercling?

Also, I haven't been on it, but Science Friction looks like it might be a #1 contender.
Can't we all just get along?

pssshh, i hear it's soft in this weather.

For the not quite so strong climbers my personal favorite is still "You Take Sally." That thing is totally cool.
efil lanrete... i enjoy the sound, but in truth i find this seductively backward idea to be quite frightening

No, I've seen it done though. I get a crappy two finger pocket below the "roof" and then go left hand to something (I can't picture it now - maybe shallow pocket) and then right to undercling.

science friction for sure, if only that bottom section were longer.

superslab is pretty technical too, then there is

all things considered
most of the 11's at chica bonita
the two vert climb's at bob marley
Glide has a really techy move down low.
How you compare may not be as important as to whom you are compared
