jacobjlloyd 11 Feb, 2012 Sent x after trying this last weekend and coming way too close, it felt brilliant to get it quickly and easily. Got the beat totally wired. Brilliant problem! Too short if anything, would love more moves. From watching lots of people trying different beta, i can confidently say this is definitely harder for those much below 6' or with short arms. Sequence is easier with just enough reach, simpler.

Up to the last move is now a path, if i wasn't wrecked by the time i got there i would have popped the last inch to the top. Next time, there is no way it is getting away. What a brilliant problem! Magic. We actually had to tape a fleece glove to the arete, so the dripping water was diverted off the footholds!
