Description

I thought this seemed a bit hard for the grade, but my crimping isn't what I'd like it to be...Start matched on the slash feature with your right hand in an incut at the far left of the rail and your left hand anywhere else on the rail.Very aesthetic climbing on gorgeous slashes in the face are what this problem is all about. The holds lend themselves to very tension-filled moves and the crux is right in the middle with a very powerful deadpoint. This is a fine problem in every regard.Pad the landing well.The sit is called, shockingly, Beyond Life Sit and was originally called V12 by the first ascentionist (or this was widely regarded as consensus for some time). Some folks call it V11 these days. Arm span for this particular climb (not total body length, seems like long arms and short legs would fit very well) is a huge determining factor in the difficulty.
