Standing on the Shoulders of Giants | 7C Boulder problem

Highball. See also The Gold Standard.
🚫 This is currently unclimbable. Typically this is because the climb existed in some state but then changed significantly (e.g. by losing holds) and is now considered a different climb.

The first incarnation of The Gold Standard that was climbed from a high start by standing on a friend's shoulders. Now superseded by the ground start.

Other than the shoulder-stand start this is an amazing problem. Sonnie's vision.
