Cryptic Magician V7/8 Flagstaff Mountain

video

Cryptic Magician is one of the great problems on the mountain with technical and delicate movements and a little bit of exposure at the finish. I was hoping to flash it but took a few tries to get it. My beta seems more straightforward than some descriptions I have seen.

Peter, I figured you would likely go left hand to the sloper before right hand to the sharp flake. I tried that but I have a bit more butt weight than you...

Ya made it look easy!

Thanks Chris. It didn't feel easy. By the way I think I may have met your wife Terry at the Spot the other day. She remembered me and my wife from the original BRC--that's way back!

Chris said...

Yep that was her, and that IS way back at this point! Time flies...

Cool problem - it looks pretty easy but there are some subtleties that make it interesting. It sure doesn't fell as slabby as it looks.

It's on the way down to Nook's Rock from the Capstan hairpin. We missed it on the tour.
