Rockfax Description
A magnificent problem out of the cave via a T-shaped crack and some slopers. The finishing pull off a rounded pocket is an exciting finale. The blocks down and right and the chipped dink out left are out of bounds. © Rockfax

Finally! Snow-covered top-out, but was too excited to care! Probably about 10 sessions, thought it would be my first V8 a while back, didn't quite work out that way... Campus move was never an issue, getting established in the break and up to the next hold have taken a year to dial!

First 'proper' session on this. Didn't go quite as I hoped but it is meant to be hard V8 so I didn't cry too much. Need to figure out best way for me to get matched on sloping break still and also how going to do top moves after slopey dish.

Campused from the large break to the sloper over the lip, nicked my mates beta for the last move and put it away.

Very happy. Been trying on and off for years. Seems training on a moonboard works for this sort of problem. Topping out from the second pocket was interesting/desperate as it and the top were wet!

Took a couple of sessions & then went down in 5 or 6 tries on saturday.

Finally. Far too much time trying it sporadically over 6 years. Finally felt easy despite the heat. Big tree above the hermit's cave has fallen off and has taken some of the trees below with it.

Progress. Got out to and matched the first sloper/finger lock. Realised that I definitely need more in the shoulders to do this problem. Excellent moves and great to have a project that really makes me work one of my many weaknesses. Bring it on!
