Really??? Since when does 5.11d get so darn hard? I know I suck but it can't be that bad. So what's the beta at the overhang?

Laugh NRG climbs, which are often inherently reachy to begin with, should be avoided when they have any form of the word "reach" in their names. I don't recall the moves exactly, but I do remember having to work it out and then finally being able to do it. I'm 5'6". I want to say I just locked off especially low and reached hard a few times, possibly with a little dynamic oomph near the end of some moves. Sorry I can't help more!

Oh, and if you haven't already done it, Skinhead Grin may not look as pretty, but it sure does climb better.
