Crag x Problems
December 15, 2016, 02:37:59 pm
Went to x the other day and worked out all the problems besides Cherokee lane, the pinch, speckled egg (both versions) and batman.

Ive got the stoney guide but still couldnt work out speckled egg.
Is batman at the very far left, starts on a jug under the roof?
Cherokee lane as far as i can work out is an alternate start to jericho, slightly rightwards?
Does the pinch climb inbetween the two?

Thanks

Pinch starts just right of jericho rd and climbs direct to the holds immediately left of and just below the big shield flake before reaching in to it. The pinch hold is obvious, the first move is reaching into it.
Cherokee starts down and right of the shield, climbs via a sort of scoop and reaches up and left towards it I think.
They all finish on the same shield but otherwise are completely independent, I'm not sure they share any other holds (depending on your sequence for JR.)

I went to Crag X today.
Does speckled egg have a sit start and standing start? i thought the standing start felt around 6b+/6c ish???

For the sitter, the 1st hold you go to with your right hand from the big rail, broke  leaving just a 2 finger edge. feels much harder than 6c. 
can anyone clarify please?
