the move on india is off a press up to a massive fingerlock ...if you're mucking about with matchstick edges you have yourself a bad sequence. Hard to imagine what was chipped (though there are some suspiciously chipped looking holds higher up on ethiopia)

people have suggested 27 for both India and even Masada ... I did pretty most of these with in the space of a few weeks one year (slime time was the only one I failed on) . in order of difficulty from easiest to hardest I would say.

slopin' sleazin'
slime time

just my opinion obviously but I did do them all at the same time so I feel like I was pretty well placed to judge the relative difficulty.

maybe claw and moorehead were pushed ahead of that send train.

It has to be said thoguh...the ring route was in a totally different league to any of that (harder than punks in my opinion). If kim had managed to get up that when he nearly did that would have been an internationally significant ascent.
