Next we headed over to a popular obstacle known as V Rock. The hardest line is to the far left (out of the photo), the standard line is up the V (visible at left), and the easy line is what I took here on the right.

Here is a nice series of me going up open-open (no lockers), just pure traction by way of very low gearing (throttle-less slow & steady Marlin Crawler static friction FTW!)





With the Marlin Crawler TacoBox engaged you can go so slow (no throttle, no brakes) that a spotter can even rest his hands atop a tire while moving!
