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!

Helen Dudley, October 12, 2019

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

Josie, October 12, 2019

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, 2019

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!
