Start pinching a diagonal rail and move right and then up on slopers and edges to the easier topout. Once you have hands above the roof, the problem is V3(from a stand start). Beta dependent body position from the starting moves. Using a heel-cam at the beginning makes the starting move true to the grade. Not using the heel cam is more core intensive and a definite V9.


On the left hand side of the low roof, facing the road on Boulder 3.

Thunderfluff is v8 without the heel cam, and maybe v7ish with it. And I'm not really sure if I got the FA on this one. Loads of people had been trying it, and I'm not sure if anyone else got it first.

I didn't know the heel cam until last year. When I first did it, Tom and I didn't use it.
