Snoopy project no more

In cold temps this morning finally after six sessions I pulled over the top of the boulder.

'Snoopy V7/8' (as I guess it should now be known as) is the line under the highest bulgiest part of the boulder.

RH in crack left to a sloper and RH long slap to a fairly good sloper in the dip at top of the boulder. Left foot is slung up and a long reach into the rightmost part of the crack with LH......Right knee swings onto the vertical flake and RH jam and pull over!...then mop up the blood!

Initially the green slime on the top of the boulder made it feel very hard, now its clean it should be a little easier! my guess for a grade is V7/8. In comparison to other problems on Carn Brea it feels harder than Pond Wall V7 and Yep V7, but in the end its one move and then a thrutch!

Well done, just goes to show what can be accomplished when you keep at it. Good luck on your next climb.

Repeated Snoopy yesterday evening (11/10/07) with the Guardian of Carn Brea (Bob) spotting & providing moral encoragement. I used the left heel up & udge technique - brutal. V7 I think but leaves a lasting impression!
Good preoblem.
