TJ slaps for the meat hook hold on Blood Brothers


An amazing line. Start as for Groove and Arete, then make tough moves left around the arete, finding a low crimp on the left face. Right hand goes to a meat hook hold high on the arete itself. Walk your feet up and slap way up and left for that distant sloper (crux). Now slab it up to the top!

For those who cannot do it in one long move (and it is a very LONG move!), good technique and/or trickery will allow for a series of steady bumps along poor slopers in order to reach the big, distant sloper.

Rocking onto the slab is not as easy as it looks, especially if you're tired/pumped. Be prepared!

Agree with all of the above. I've switched my beta to the bump method as well. And I find the slab move hard as well. Feels very hard for v7
