Updog Sit at black

I forgot to mention this small tidbit that should have been included from this past blog post here showing Anthony trying his project Howl’s Moving Castle. Jill added a sit to Updog, upping the grade by a point, seconded by Anthony.

Adding to the stand at 3 or 4 points, are more crimps to pull on from a true sit. Here are a couple of shots of the start:

though hard to see, I'm almost pulling on to the start holds from a sit

One more thing. This is an old shot of Al Lew when he was living in socal, now on The Front Range. He’s trying an old project I sent afterwards at a later date, at v8, that I can’t remember the name. It’s on the Tour de France boulder, far left blunt arete following the seam visible.

I can't remember the name, but it's the far left line following the seem on the blunt arete at the Tour de Force boulders
