Ok, Have any of you ever seen a problem where an over hang angles down? I can't find one for the life of me, and I think some sic moves could really be performed on them, I know I at least want to try. it looks like the overhang is at a 45 degree slant or any angle for that matter, and then dips back down towards the ground in a similar angle, and then changes back to angle back up.
like an upside down V

i dont know, any thoughts would be appreciated.

Yes, I have seen this many times. In the gym this is a pretty common shape. If I am reading this correctly the shape looks something like and "n" with part of one leg chopped off. IN reality what happens is that people don'e use the upper portion of the 45 degree wall because the lip is closer so they just reach across the gap to holds on the other side. These shapes also provide good places for knee bars and other rests so they sometimes defeat the purpose which is to create a hard route not one with a big old rest in the middle

If you can picture that, the dotted part is the ground.. you get it! anyways the angles between the teeth thingys is bigger, which makes for some stylish moves, its a fun boulder problem
