Even though its a link-up, this climb gives you the full value of the boulder. It combines the difficulty(and then some) of Child Prodigy with the highball finish of Moat Flake.

Start as for Child Prodigy and then cut left at the large hollow flake in the middle of the face. Use a crystal covered knob and some unique body positioning to fire out and left to a large side pull. From here work your way up to the lip of The Moat Flake and then finish up the highball arĂȘte.

That cross move to the crystal covered knob takes some serious body tension and the unwind move to the sidepull is extremely difficult. Pretty neat sequence and definitely one of the harder V8's I've done at Rumney. I thought this line flowed better than Child Prodigy as well. It has a very definitive crux but I think more people should try it, I'm glad I did. Nice job Mike! Nov 25, 2017
