Sesame Street Direct – V8
Grand Wall Boulders
Right heel to go up to the famous pinch and bump left to the first intermediate and jump!
Once again... Did ridiculous beta... The catch to the crimp was severe. But either way, really fun climb!
Sesame Street was more fun
I'll concede soft 9, but this is a 9 in my books. Many a day were spent on this climb.
V8 in the new guide (V9 in the old)
This took me quite a few sessions to get and felt harder than other v8s I've done. Really crazy left heel hook to reach for better top holds.
I would honestly say it sounds the same difficulty as the proper. Guide book grade
Yes! 3 sessions over 2 years with varying beta each session. Finally just decided to jump to the sloper. Felt like v9 in the August heat. Squamish....
This was harder for me than the original start, but still turned out to be pretty fun.
Felt really hard until I fine-tuned my beta. Very fun problem! Three left hand moves in a row for the finish.
Sustained difficulty for a few moves. I used the undercling... felt more secure and less intimating than the lunge I see people doing. Hopefully I can put down the full (non-direct) problem some time...
Kinda bunchy, but at least it ends in a dyno.
Seems more obvious to me than the traverse start. Really enjoyed this one. Probably soft, as I did it 3rd day on after jogging up the chief.. makes for a memorable send though.
A flow into a pop. Trixy!
forget the heel hook and go straight up! fun and easier! woot!
I liked the original better.
Almost flashed! 2nd go. More fun than the original. Might be a bit easier if you're short like me.
I managed to do one move this day that I had never done before so I knew it was on. It was so cold but yet the SS crimper-pinch still felt slightly greasy.
More fun than the original (I think ) ...
So many ways to do it, but finally found my beta!
I like it more than the original. Maybe feels a little easier?
Pretty decent variation, still the same fun.
Felt Easier than the original.
Pretty cool, but not much different than the regular
One session. Much easier than Sesami Street for me
There is a hard way and an easy way but not putting heel above head is definitely a good idea
Holds were wet
make it a bit different
I liked this one better
Downgrade in the new book? I disagree. This took me like 4 days of work. Regular start took me 3 tries. dafuq?
