Scotland's first 8A boulder problem

The original method. From the two holds just below the crack climb to the jammed block and either pinch or crimp the top to make a big span up to the flake with your left hand. Now match the flake and finish up Pongo.

Stewart B 6 Apr, 2008 Sent x There is new beta for this - instead of the pinch get a right hand finger lock just above this and pull through to the flange somewhat easier. New grade is around 7B+ as a result. Great to get such an amazing line done, even if a little diminished in stature.
