f5+ - Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
Forest of Dean Bouldering Circuit f5
Standing on the Shoulders of Giants is found at 3 Rocks on the Perfect Block.
Sit start using the middle undercling, smear the left wall and avoiding the flat top using the crack only, make you way to the left wall. Use the aretes and a cheeky foot on the flat ledge to reach the top. Go for the jug on the tree and topout with ease.
I love this problem and give a star or 2 for the grade. That jug between the branches is good, come on!? Hopefully you agree!
