The extensive dry, sunny period we are currently experiencing may be a bit warm for hard bouldering, but it is also offering up some unusual opportunities for new problems. At the side of the much instagrammed infinity pool (which sits just below Caff’s recent addition, Tiny, King of the Jews sds. See page 152 in the NWB 3.1 Mountain Crags guide) an undercut, prow has caught the eye of many a passing climber. Normally its landing is flushed by the constant flow of the stream feeding the pool. However the stream is currently dried up enough to reveal a clean rock landing.

Joe Sterling noticed this first and acted quickly to grab a couple of fine new problems. Influencers in the Wild (7A) tackles the prow front on from a sitting start, left hand in low break, right on the positive sidepull. Compression moves lead up to a slopey topout.

Social Missleadia (6B+) tackles the right hand wall of the boulder from a crouch start using the obvious opposition holds. Reach a set of slopers and go for the top.
