<< Picnic Sarcastic < Problem 12  |  Grand Opera > Impropa Opera >>

Desperate traversing from the ramp of Picnic to join and finish up Impropa Opera.


AFAIK Hocking and Parry did this at V11. The V12 Neil Thompson original started as for Picnic LH sitter and went into this. Could be wrong though...

to put the record straight, done in two sections,I think in Nov 1998? one starts from sit down start to picnic sarcastic (the harder one from the left)to the large hold at the start of impropa. Also done from the flat hold standing start to picnic sarcastic and traversing right then up impropa. I always intended to link it and call it 'Rising Damp' (the start always was and needed drying with a towel before each attempt) but lack of stamina, enthusiasm, old age etc meant it never happened. Good luck to anyone who links it into the rest of a ladder face traverse, should be easier now power pinch has a huge side pull on it.
