Freestyle at Llandudno

Matt Bush has opened a new problem at Llandudno and is working on a new project in Fresnaye.  The problem is called ‘Freestyle’ (7B) at the Point Boulders.  The line is 12m and follows a perfect seam.

He has also found himself a new project dubbed the ‘Body, mind & soul’ which goes at 8B.

I have been searching for new challenging first ascents on the granite below Lion’s Head.  This particular feature captured my imagination.  I called the project Body, Mind & Soul.  After climbing the route with a rope I graded it 8B.

The boulder is 20m with the crux at 15m which is why it is so mentally challenging.  The boulder features quartzite edges which form sharp holds that demand a controlled and exact style of movement.   I feel like I have some way to go, mentally, before achieving this project as a free solo.  The beauty of the place is a determining factor for my projects nowadays.  If I am going to spend some time on a project then it’s going to be in a beautiful place
