Ascents

3 recorded ascents.

Climber Style FA Ascent Date Suggested Grade
Simon Lorenzi Boulder (Worked) 08 Feb 2021 9A

After ticking the stand start quickly the low start was a much more protracted affair, stretching out to 25 days of effort.

To make a crucial knee on the sit work better Simon used a book underneath his kneepad to make his shin a little longer. The name of the problem comes from the title of the book.
