Kent on Frites


(AKA French Fries & Soup)

Sit start at the bottom of the obvious diagonal crack that runs from the top of the boulder to the bottom (far right of the boulder, same start as Fulgora). Your right hand starting at the good sidepull portion of the bottom of the crack, left hand on the low left crimp. Pop up through another crimp (optional) and gaston left into the higher jug part of the crack. From here, work tough moves out right through a horizontal crimp rail and a triangular pinch/crimp which leads to a huge dyno (or not) out to a jug at the lip of the boulder. Hang on and top out.


This used to be a "soft" v9, but due to someone’s "improvement" of the key, crux foot hold this line is v8 now. Let’s avoid manufacturing or tampering with boulders here and anywhere else.

Please give feedback on any future ascents (after ~08July2015)


Just to the left of "Aftershock".
