Rigpa** V9 / f7C
[James on Rigpa v8+., 3 kb]Start left of Northumberland Wonderland. Reach an obvious hold with vain in roof with left and make a powerful, blind move round the bulge to a sharp finger edge and then up to the juggy break to finish. Holds on Northumberland Wonderland were not used on the first ascent.
**The original crimp (sharp finger edge) has now broken, re-ascended on the 7.3.15 by T.Fenwick. Goes to a small slopey crimp just up and left of where the original crimp was, then pop for the top.**

Now the crimp has broken off used a different, slightly worse hold to left of original crimp. Harder than before. Morpho 7c?

Well... Not sit but used the lowest starting holds. Considering I smashed my ankle missing the pad and topped out like a water plunged cat, I don't think I'll be back for the sit any time soon :/ brilliant problem but memories of it will be blurred by a terrified top-out with no one to spot :/ first f7b(+) buzzzzing my nuts off (and nursing soft tissue damage...)!!

Trying to work the crux. I may be here for a while.... Can't quite lock off and do the move static. Another 100 goes and maybe...

What a move, felt really tensiony, you just gotta stick it!

Cool line. Nearly did it dynamically then realised I could lock it static! Sitter adds nothing imo.

First time really trying this properly. Think it will go with right foot by hand method and go through static. Not using hold on Northumberland Wonderland. TBC

Video: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=StsjmTkjKfo. Found an easier sequence for me than the FA one, using a little intermediate crimp for the RH (not a hold on North Wonderland, to be clear, not the way I do it anyway!). Of course it would be harder if you eliminate some of the holds, but you'd need blinkers!
