Chasing the Dragon, aka Enter the Dragon's Ass

Apparently there has been a bit of discussion about the boulder problem Chasing the Dragon. The obvious sitstart to Enter the Dragon was given a big number despite lacking any moves that are actually that difficult and recently this long, steep problem has had several repeats due to new beta eliminating the crux dyno and making the problem 3 moves shorter. Now climbing between the original exit and Draggin' Ass (a problem I established to the left) people are proposing that there are two different problem that should be graded differently. Of course none of this would matter if grades weren't involved but egos need to be stroked and the roof will probably end up looking like a connect-the-dots, having 6 different problems depending on which hold you touch.
The problem was already soft, to use the parlance of our times, and now it's softer. Who cares? Maybe the best option is to combine all the could be problems into a single name and grade. I suggest Entering the Dragon's Ass, V-who-gives-a-shit.

And now to stroke my own ego, here is a vid of the new beta for Chasing the Dragon, aka Enter the Dragon's Ass.
