[peak] [secret garden] Powerball 7C???

If you are deeply offended by lowballs look away now.

Anyways, this has been an ongoing project for a couple seasons. On the main path to secret garden thereís a small cluster of boulders (where Darth Maul is located) - I finally cracked out the project prow which consists of climbing a non featured ball from a sit/lay starting on two slopey crimps. You then climb the ball straight up. Not much to it, bring forearm skin to spare and plenty of power, this felt harder than any 7C Iíve done but with all FA endeavours I could be way off the mark, either way not too bothered about the grade itself but the climbing is proper scrappy and fun if youíre into that kind of thing. Reminiscent of 3í10 at brimham

Nice. DM me a vid if you've got one. If only to make me wince. :???:
You do that today? Just been walking the dog around Millstone, looking at all the dry rock and wishing I could climb.
