There was wood. A super difficult skinny to get onto and followed by another that led you slightly right after.
Now looks pretty easy.
I'm a fan of all this new woodwork but some of the difficultly is being tamed down iMO.
I would second this but I am now 43 with a major knee reconstruction. You can have fun but the days of the 6 inch skinny 15 feet in the air are over. You need to prevent lateral falls since this is where your major ACL injuries come from. I am all for challenge but at the expense of body injury that will haunt you for life? Note to this: After my scope I was told I had 20 years left until a knee replacement, and that was 10 years ago. I lift weights, and due to this fact I cannot lift hard on my knees. Is it really worth it to go skinny? Greater risk at greater cost? IMO no. If you want skinnies like the old days ride highway dividers. They are everywhere, low to the ground, and never wear out. Unlike my knee. I sure wish this knowledge was around in the old days…..
