Once I realized I don’t need to crush my fingers under my own heel hook, I came to really enjoy this climb. The falls going for the pebble pinch are nice and committing. Regarding the grade, I’m taking the respect my elders approach and going with Andrew, Nate, Jesse, etc, since I haven’t done enough 10s to know for sure. It did take me longer than most all 9s I’ve done. Regardless, this boulder is fun and subtle!
Is there a super soft button? Definitely a mid v8, great climb though. Still taking 10 bc it was 85* at 6pm in August. Took about 30 minutes to finish this one up. I really enjoyed my time at Carver though. Hopefully I can come back more this season for manageable weather
Session five on a calm, wet night. All the injuries in the world couldn’t stop me from achieving my goal on time (sending a V10 before my 2 year anniversary of starting climbing :D) Now I get to climb inside again for a while and maybe get a bit healthier before I move onto other projects!
Used the left hand heel match. Not that great of a climb if you ask me. Looks cooler than it is. Get on Cedar Proj, Dolza, Naughty Karate, Sensei if you're in Carver. Video: https://www.instagram.com/p/B2GWi6HjETI/
FA. Very satisfying send. Cleaned off lots of moss and took a couple days to work out the moves. Precision and holding onto bad holds for a long time while adjusting the feet. Desperate! Thanks Steve for the motivation!
