The Buddha - V7


Classic Gunks problem.


On the left side of Andrew area, on the belly like feature, start with hands and feet on the belly. Slap and hook your way out to the point, move up to a left hand crimp and top out on good holds


a couple pads and spotters are probably a good idea

On the try before I sent this problem, I fell flat on my back after both my hands peeled simultaneously but my double heel hooks stayed firm, sucking me back into the start of the problem and away from my spotters outstretched arms. I landed on one of the old (two inches of foam) Fish pads. That pad design is one that is not seen anymore. It was long and wide, but was thin and had only closed cell foam. I got the wind knocked out of me, to say the least. My trad climbing (not much of a boulderer) spotter later told me he thought I was dead! We still joke about this story to this day. Good times...
