Paul Barker on the stand up version of Prowed Slab 7A Photo: Si Panton

Jimmy ‘Big Guns’ McCormack has climbed a nice sitter on the main Caseg Boulder. Prowed Slab 7A starts just to the left of Don't think, Drink and moves up into the ‘monkey-up-a-stick-arete’.

Jim spilled the beta:

“Sit start with good high left foot, and a good left-hand undercut just above (in the base of the groove), and right hand on a small crimp on the slab (this is the crimp you take with your left on Don't think, Drink). A powerful pull/lock leads to a good crimp with your right hand, then you can flick for the left arete with your left hand. High step with your right foot and rock over to a small crimp with your right hand, then onto the right arete. Finish easily up the slab!”
