Agreed - this isn't something you want to peel off of - your landing zone has got a big fat flake sticking up.

Tried this numerous times last summer, but my fingers just kept slipping out of the polished crack. If it wasn't for the landing, I would have just tried to heave myself up, and risk a fall of a few feet.
I didn't spend nine years in Evil Graduate School to be called "Mr Irish", thank you!

The standard, but still nice, shot on p3 of CCK. Thanks to Phil (no, not THAT Phil, a different one) for the photo.

umm. training purposes
thought i would make myself heavier so i could be more badass?

its really just two hexes. like the 6 and 7 hexentric i think, not exactly the heaviest gear to bring up.

and since i was going for the onsight i didnt know what i would need and i am usually too lazy to actually pare down my rack for each climb i lead especially i had paid good money for that piece

I don't care if it was PG/G/R or X anyway. I had a great time on the route. It wasn't hard; I wasn't scared so who cares?

Get it straight.
G means you can swing your rack over your head and a piece will set itself in a horizontal.
PG means a competent, properly equiped leader should find opportunities to protect moves within 2 grades of the crux, with distances between these opportunities that injury will most likely not occur in the event of a fall. Assuming Eddie isn't belaying you.
Or you're not on Honky Tonk Woman, PG my ass.
(not that there's anything wrong with that...sorta)

I take back everything I said. Classic is most definitely rated G.

Classic is G. Agreed. Like most other Off-the-ground crux moves in the gunks, it is graded lower than it would be somewhere mid-pitch or higher, ie. Hyjeks Horror and many others. My call would be more like 5.8, but real fun and essentially one move. Send.
