Description

A cool variation on a crimp testpiece. Start as for Blaow on two small crimps. Find your feet and instead of dynoing to the jug straight up, cross up and right to the cool sidepull pinch. Fire up and right to some better crimps then top 'er out.

A sweet jump start variation goes to this at about v7. Start holding the right starting crimp, find out which foot you want to keep on the ground, then jump and catch the sidepull pinch with your left hand. Finish up the same way.

Location

If you are looking at Ride The Lightning, look to the left and find the two chalked up horrendous crimps. These are the start holds for Blaow and Blaow's Cousin.

Protection

2 pads, a spotter is recommended as there is a tree that the climber could potentially hit if they blow the upper moves.

The jump start to this was actually really fun and still really hard. I look forward to trying the full line with better temps. If you've done Blaow you should definitely give this thing some goes. Jun 5, 2016

Managed to send this the other day and I really do think its one of the better v10's at Pawtuckaway and although the first move is definitely the crux it feels good to climb another four or five moves on a problem instead of just one move and topout out like Blaow. It's a great addition to Boulder Natural even though its been here all along and just never got climbed... youtube.com/watch?v=QP4uk0E… Jun 17, 2016
