Porcupine's Pine V7, Luskville, Quebec - Hans Christian Montenegro

 
Porcupine's Pine V7, Luskville, Quebec - Hans Christian Montenegro
 
October 07, 2013 - 
 

This problem was the first one that I did on my trip to Gatineau (Luskville). Gatineau is a wonderful town. A town built into a park. It was marvelous to live into a park for a month. Also, I had never seen a real sportive town. Everyone practice a physical activity like Kayak, bike, jogging, trekking and climbing. Everyone is a healthy citizen.

I got this place grace to Jonathan Audy. He is a climber that has been developing a lot of new boulder in different places (Gatineau and Lac-Brome).  The Porcupine's Pine is a nice problem if you keep the line trough the corner. (I don’t really like problems with eliminating holds but this one is a good one). The hard movement is the start. You have two smalls crimps one of them is a side pull. Then you have to use your hook in order to reach a big hold (this is a big movement).  Then, you have to climb through the corner.  In my opinion this problem is a V7. The first movement is a V7 and the rest of the problem is a V4 problem.

You can see here the problem. Have fun and climb a lot.

Thanks for watching and reading.
