Body Snap Sit

V6, Boulder, 15 ft,  Avg: 3.6 from 18 votes
FA: unknown
Pennsylvania > S Central PA > Governor Dick P… > Colflesh Area > Body Snap

Description

An area classic, one of the most tried in all of Gretna!

Sit start with a good undercling and a crimp. Pull up and snag the side pull, pick some feet and make crux long move out left to good crimps. Follow the crimps left up to a big sloper. Then make a tension move to the lip to a causal topout.

Although this is called Body Snap Sit the only move it shares with Body Snap is the top out.

Location

Obvious low starting holds on the Body Snap Boulder.

Protection

Multiple pads and spotter

[Hide Comment] What's the story with the start--is the block on for your right foot or is that to be avoided? Easy enough move with it on but pretty damn stout without it. What's the general consensus here? Dec 24, 2014

[Hide Comment] Sean. I was told by multiple locals that they use the block for their foot. Dec 28, 2014

[Hide Comment] At least years comp the detached block was marked as being "off". Definitely harder, and better, without it. I still see a lot of people using it though, so I don't think anyone really cares. Apr 3, 2015

[Hide Comment] I concur with dbick--using the block takes away from the climb. The first moves are my favorite. They feel so good, and there're so many different, cool ways to start. The block stifles creativity by decreasing the technical difficulty of the climb. If pulling the beginning moves without the block isn't accessible to a climber, however, for the love of fun use it! The rest of the problem climbs really well, too. Nov 21, 2015
