Ok, I was reading the "how come there aren't any 5.14 cracks" thread, and that got me thinking, what is the hardest crack at woodson?

There has to be some uber-project offwidth or thin tips out there that is either unsent or unlisted due to its difficulty.

I've tried, witnessed others succeed, spoke to or heard of many hard cracks out there. To name a few... Aids Victim, I Hear my Train a Comin', Driving South (Hidetaka Suzuki calls it 5.12 "if it was on a route"), Lie Detector, Widow's Bereft, Columbo Crack, Starving in Stereo, Mother Superior, Undertow, Vice Principal's Office. A few that come to mind as being incredibly hard are, Undertow, Firefly, and Vice Principal's Office (on lead). There are two that have been ticked by Rick Piggot (I don't even know the name of them), that must be way hard are...the seam to the left of Atom Ant, and a seam that diagonals across the glass face on the backside of the Chimney Rock, before the Lunch Rock area, on the right hand, downhill side of the road.

how many people have actually free climbed the bottom section of lie detector. I saw the picture of kauk but other than that I havent talked to anyone who has.

Iv spent some time trying to figure out the right beta for it. All Iv managed to do is get my feet onto the rock and hold myself in a position so tight any other movement would be impossible. I can get it once i get into that nice pocket about 8 ft up but im only 5'7'' so getting there is the trick

anyone have any beta for it?
