My first Font 7c+/V10 ‘Master Kush’

A while back I managed to climb the route ‘Master Kush’ at Rivelin Edge.
Making this the first boulder problem that I’ve climbed at the grade of Font 7c+/V10.

The first time I checked this out was last year after having spotted it in the guide book looking for problems that suited my style.
A nice series of tension moves with a dyno crux … seemed just my thing.

Initially the moves felt desperate, most likely due to the start of the warm weather but seeing possibility was not deterred.

This year after having climbed ‘End of the Affair’ I changed my focus on bouldering and so, found myself sitting under this problem again, and again and again.
In fact I found myself here 6 days in total including the first session the last year.

A little frustrating as I could do all the moves from the second session but however it took me another 4 sessions to be able to land the dyno in a full link.

On the day of success I actually linked it twice as I had a dab on the pad the first time.
Although it was barely a touch I was not happy to call it done until there was no dab.
Luckily the next attempt went smoothly, and my hardest boulder to date was done.

Here is the video (the quality is not great but it shows me getting up the thing):
