Run and jump problems in Wicklow
« on: September 22, 2012, 09:33:11 AM »
Does anyone know of any problems in Wicklow that can or need to be done with a run and jump?

Not really a running based approach but close:

"Electroshock   7b+   Wicklow   Electric Mountain   Forest   High up in the forest is a slightly overhanging smooth wall with a pebble at knee height. Right foot on, assume superman pose, launch, classic."

The problem in Mall Hill between the very first boulder (Knife Fork Spoon) and the track, with the small tree stump underneath? I don't have a guide to hand.

Thanks lads. Both start with one foot on so not exactly what I was thinking of. I suppose they are pretty rare.

What about the one on the egg boulder. More just jump but could be run

I sandbagged Richie Sandes one time by telling him that the hard slab on the left face of the Fin in glendo was 6a+

He did it with a run and a jump so that was me told! :-)
