The Wave*** V6 6c / f7A
[Cranking hard on Dartmoor granite., 1 kb]Start with left hand on chalked hold in break below "monkey paw", right on slopey hold in lower break. Latch monkey paw with right, left out to good crystal hold in next break. Keep your head for the top-out (good "dog's dick" hold up top for final scary mantel but quite far back on right).

Ouchhh! Skin was starting to feel it by then, but boned determinedly and got it done, superb! Got to really concentrate on feet sticking, and super tensiony to stick and move off the "monkey paw hold" (wtf does that even mean?) Classic moors problem for sure.

Really supprised to get this. Incredible moves on perfect granite. Took about 20 tries.

Beautiful. Many attempts various ways ... finally ignored the beta I'd got from watching someone else, latched the monkey paw 'just so' and the rest felt easy!

Just to the top break - too wet (and high!) to top out.
