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).

Another granite classic. Cool problem. Got to love those Dartmoor grades :P!

Flash from the higher hold. A local told me that wasn't cricket so took a good few more goes to start with both hands in the lower break. Considerably harder that way - v7.

Hmm seems I was starting with left hand lower than as described above. Really struggling to get the monkey's paw hold. This problem is very basic and is difficult to technique your way round pulling hard! As always I'll be back. A good problem if weather is blowing in from North-west.

A few goes but quickly realized that it's hard! One to come back for

1st go but have a feeling I may have pulled on almost 3 years ago! Hard for the grade.

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.

From the lowest holds. Felt like V7

Excellent! Top out a tad spicy but theres enough good holds up there to make it ok.

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.

Tried the direct (LH on monkey paw) a bit more
