Description

Climbs the steep north-facing wall of the boulder. Start on an obvious low rail, up to a sharp crimp, undercling left hand, another crimp right hand and bust left to a good crimp over the lip and traverse left on good holds.

This problem is all about finger strength and power. Despite its short and easily inspectable nature, EHB has frustrated many.

Protection

One or two pads, insect repellent.

The dedicated boulderer Angie Payne made the first female ascent of European Human Being late in the 2008 season. She first tried it at the end of the 2006 season fresh off a slew of V11 first female ascents in the Park. During 2007, she worked it often. After 3 seasons, she made the link, owing to her strength and perseverance. Feb 7, 2014
