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.
