[Kris, close on Improper Opera, 3 kb]Start from the large flat hold and pull up and slightly right on small holds and a pinch for a classic Bowderstone tick. A number of variations exist ranging from V8 to V9. The sit-down start is V11. © ROCKFAX
Start matched on the large flatty and slap up to the shoddy pinch. Now nifty pulling on ever smaller edges to finish. The best moves on the stone! Can also be done starting slightly right (old skool version) using the big edge (X hold); same grade.
