Helped my friend complete his first solid V7 climb! A solid V7 which start with a reach to a dish. Edging back toe to a cross reach to the reverse side of the dish. A jump reach to a vertical crimp and a REALLY high foot chip smaller than my little finger nail! That's the easy part though, The next dynamic through to a negative slopped dish earns the V7. After that its just a quick horizontal Dino to a nice finish piece. After projecting this problem for a bit, i read some beta to make it even possible. My friend definitely took a bit longer, but with my beta and quite a bit of runs, he finished his first V7 problem!
