Description

Sit start and climb the arete for a few moves then move out left onto the slab up through some small pockets.

Using the foot that looks like the ground that is used for Slunk (you'll know it when you see it), makes Slunk Left feel about V5.

The foot hold that looks like the ground should probably be considered "off", however it is a continuation of the same hold that you use with your left foot. The problem is that using it on Slunk has no effect on the rating and adds no real difficulty but on Slunk Left it does. The legit, full value send for both problems should be both hands in the horizontal and not using that foot but it's bouldering so do what seems right and fun for you. Anyway, nice video and good send, Melanie. Mar 16, 2018

Using the ground foot feels about V5, and almost not worth doing, since you can pretty much stand on that foot hands-free... Do yourself a favor and try not using it for a V7 worth doing. May 15, 2018
