The boulder looks amazing but the sitstart is quite stretched, I can not get my butt anywhere near the ground if it starts on both sides. Any suggestions? Where do you start? Thanks for the help!

Sorry, I had the same problem, I don’t think the start goes at the same grade for shorties!

Josie, October 12

Damnit! What did you do? Just squad start and a bit higher? I noticed there is a not so good hold down there too. I thought maybe use that instead for the left hand and put a toe or heel around the left arete to replace the hand haha.

Good thinking, Maybe that would work, but I just got grumpy and went to climb something else !! 🤪

Josie, October 12

Oh haha that’s a bummer! I see on video’s that even taller people start squatted aswell. We’ll see, going to give it a try today!

Awesome, let me know how you get on. Silvergrey is quite straight forward for shorties, and you might try https://bettybeta.com/bouldering/fontainebleau/mont-simonet/poignee-damour too if you’re feeling strong. Have a fun day

Thanks! Silvergrey was fun, fits perfectly for shorties. Nice line I think. I will check out the other boulder aswell, thank you for your help

It looks cool but a little high. I am all alone so don’t have any spotters. Maybe another time. If you have other nice suggestions of not to high boulders graded from 6c untill 7b let me know. I will be here all week in case you would like to join. Have a nice weekend😊

I am short, not terribly bold, and nearly always climb on my own, feel free to look at my list of ascents for ideas, but I really recommend a day at Drei Zinnen on Close contact and Bifurcation :-)

I see this just now! Tried close contact but started to rain. Next time!
