It is indeed the thing we looked at, had a feel of the holds and then dismissed as a bit daft and eliminate. It is eliminate, but is actually a rather good problem. Bit of a one move wonder.
This is the problem:
You start with your left on a dirty sharp sidepull crimp thus:
Right on a poor small slopey thingy-ma-bob:
Smear your left foot on the lip pull on and then pop up for a good right hand:
The left starting hold is VERY sharp, I brushed up the holds a bit then swazzled a flash but on reaching the top discovered this:
Thats just from pulling on once, multiple goes on this are not an option.
Anyway it's a nice move, the finish is scay when wet as it's covered in green slime but in the dry would be very easy. I don't flash 7C+, but maybe I was just lucky? I can imagine it feeling nails if you every time you try it you get a go or two then have to wait two weeks for your finger to heal. Fuck it, I'll take 7C+ until Jim downgrades it to 7A...
I know this doesn't belong in significant repeats really, sorry.
