Black Chipper Arete** f7A+ / V7
Just below 'Black Chipper', powerful slapping with the left hand might gain the arete guppy. The most widely recognised beta at about 7a+ seems to start LH undercut, RH slopey pinch, feet on the flake out right. Bit eliminate but very good - be careful with brushing the arete (i.e. probs best not to...)

did this a while back, on a warm day so I expected it to be harder than it was for a slopey 7a+. Lovely climb though.

Got the first moves sorted but need better core to finish it off. Cool movement.

LH undercut, RH slopey rail. slapped out with LH, cut loose on the guppies, campus to good hold, found the reach up to the top quite hard. 7a+

Soft for 7b but but 6c. F7/+ is about right.

Gets 7b in book, although I'd agree 7a+. Defo not 6c.
BobbyG - 02/Sep/10 with james gowdy

Have done variations before on this but did as described in the new guidebook today - starting left hand deep slopey undercut, right hand sloper rail. Given 7B in there but more like 7A+. Nice powerful moves - cut loose on dual guppies mandatory!
