The latest news on routes and problems
Latest Update – Wednesday 16th August
Boulder set of panels 3,4 & 7 was undertaken by Mark Pretty on Monday. I was able to do some of them yesterday, but not all. Problems 1-7 are a jug fest, with 6 & 7 making easy problems up panel 4. At problem 8 they start getting technical as well as using smaller crimpy holds. 9 has jugs to get you off the floor but half way up the holds go smaller. Don’t get wrong handed on problem 10 and I suggest for 11 you have a spotter to help you find your feet to push you over the low roof.12 using the wonderful red rails, its hard but works if you find your feet. I ran out of time, but just before I had to go to work I did 17. This is the first of this sets symmetrical problems, 20 being the other. Pink holds, do you naturally go left hand first or right? Now lead with the other hand and feel the difference.
