... which of these variations would be best to work on...
Option #1 B1-3-7-B7, I tried his for a while and on my best attempt my high hand was about an 1" under rung 7
Option #2 B1-4-7-B7, I tried this as well and 1-4-6 was easy but again progress beyond that seemed very far away
Option #3 B1-2-6-B6, I figure keeping the may be a way to progress to larger reaches with the higher hand
1-4-7 is surely easier than 1-3-7, so I would work on that. 1-2-6 might be easier than 1-4-7, but I'm not sure. That 2nd move would probably be really hard. I would just work on 1-4-7 for a while. Chances are good you will improve a lot between your 1st and 3rd (or so) campus sessions of the cycle.
Bought your book a few month ago. Really interesting and well made. On p.145, you're talking about "progressive max ladders" (sets 9-20). I'm sorry for my poor english, but cannot get the idea of what "progressive max ladders" is. What do you mean by "progressive" ?
Still, thanks for sharing your knowledge. Greetings from France !

It means attempting increasingly more difficult Max Ladders. For example, if the hardest Max Ladder you can do is 1-3-5, then you would warm up, work up to doing 1-3-5, and then try the next hardest Max Ladder (probably 1-3.5-5.5). You would probably want to try it a few times leading with each hand. If you stick it, then try the next hardest ladder (1-3.5-6), and so on.
