Blaow

Description 

Start high on two crimps above head height (they are bad!!) Deadpoint all points off to jug up and left. It looks possible, but it isn't.

For a V5 boulderer I have decent crimp strenght. I can support my body weight on these crimps and pull up with feet on, but man i can't imagine what kind of training it would take for me to feel confident dyno-ing off these crimps.


Location 

Left of Ride the Lightning, right of Terrorist.


Protection 

Pad and spotter strong enough to catch you, so you can commit.

There is also a variation that heads up and right. Pull on to the two crimps, cross left hand up to a decent sidepull, then follow the holds straight up.

The variation is also supposed to be about V10

The variation is also good (maybe better in my opinion) from a jump start - grab the better of the two crimps with your right hand and jump to the pinch. Not v10 if you jump though.
