"Antelope."


<11.14.07> Chris Shulte on a the 2nd ascent, followed by a Scott Neel repeat.
Discovered back when, this problem was probably a little too futuristic to be done at the time. Last year, i found a way to establish on the 9-foot-up sloper by a run jump start, though i could never link the rest. Paul Robinson also stuck the run jump, but took right immediately, by crimping a nasty crystal and slinging a foot out right. He named it "Leroy Jenkins". A few months later, Scott Neel stuck the sloper and followed by an all out dyno direct to a distant hold, and tackled the short slab crux. He named it "Antelope."
sincerely, Marco Esquandolas.

Glad to see that one finally went down. And in two flavors at that! Is the launching technique with the two trees still the same?

Ha, i forgot! The nordic uphill skier start, using the momentum to two swinging trees to get a quicker start to the run/jump, isn't used anymore. I think such a vision was limited to "the physically weaker."

of effing course, however, trampoline starts are valid if wearing a mascot costume.

note: chuckles calls 'antelopes' 'speed goats'.

therefore, this problem shall be known as 'speed goat' henceforth.
