hey folks! ok, so today i was at the satelite boulders and was working turning point. yeah, i know the weather isnt the best for friction on that problem right now. but, this is what i did....

i started under the roof and worked my way out to the low holds at the arete. instead of continuing left to the slopey hold and high left crimps, i stayed on the left juggy hold and the right kinda slopey hold and placed my right foot high and inside and launched for the top. i hit the top on the right side and then traversed the lip to the normal top out.

my question... do you think that may have down graded the problem to maybe a V8ish? since i technically didnt go out on the left face. just curious what folks think. i am not one to say i sent something if i really didnt.

regardless, it was freakin' awesome! and i will go back to do the correct version when the weather is cooler.

let me know folks!

thanks,
a strange breed

Sounds like you had fun, which is all that really matters.
Unless you were winning a prize for getting to the top, take it for what it was - a fun day of bouldering. Go back and send every variation you can think of. It's all just playing around on rocks right?

If someone asks if you've ever sent Turning Point, just say something like "I did it using a cool throw to the top from the point. May have been a little easier than the traditional way, but it was fun."

Unfortunately Turning Point is regarded by most as V8 even when done the "right" way. I would call it good and move on.

I have done the topout you're describing and I thought it to be in the V6 range, the crux on turning point is turning the corner onto the face for the normal topout. The way you're describing is still a fun problem tho...
