Is this boulder problem an elaborate joke at my expense. This was my third session on it, and i'm no closer than when i first tried it. It's clearly exposing an obvious weakness or I'm missing something if it's 6a.

6a? my arse, you can tell 'some wad' has graded this. If this move where on a route it'd get british 6b/6c no probs. good problem, tough. Poss harder for tall folk? we have to bend our arms and legs a lot more than shorties.

Not a chance this is V4 or V5 or whatever, more like a hard V2 with good footwork as someone else said. Do have to be very precise, then a quick hop and grab the good edge. Controlled the swing because I wanted it so bad, got feet back on and reached over the top. Really nice but overgraded.

MTL 04/Aug/08 Sent x

Did when I was struggling on font 5`s, so reckon font 6a.

if this is a standing start, it doesn't deserve V4, more like V2 (with good footwork). Sitting start would be nails.
