Holly Tree Roof in The Scalp
« on: January 03, 2013, 03:41:04 PM »
Had a good session on this today. I know that it was given 6b in the guide which is a touch scabby. But I don't think any of the individual moves are hard, it's just that there are loads of them and they are quite low percentage.

Anyone done it? Where did you start and finish?

The lower holds were wet today but it looks like you could start directly below the arete or on the jugs around the corner to the right. The finish I was working was a big blind slap to the jug, there was lots of chalk on the small crimp beside the third sidepull, you could definitely do a harder finish to the right. Must get a video of it.

Start low and right on the jugs, traverse left on sidepulls, originally done by going as left as possible adding harder moves, most slap up to the top once around the arete hence the lower than original grade.......

Good problem, starting around the corner, where kev said.  The 'new' finish seems to be the one that people climb, probably cause of the great slap to the hidden but massive hold, so not a bad thing!  i'd say harder than 6b alright, 6c.  The finish to the left is a harder but i'd personally prefer the straight up slap finish and think it makes sense as a natural, albeit not original, finish.
