Can you tell us more about the ascent?
We came back to Ticino after a long time away and I was psyched to try this line! Fun climbing on smooth holds next to the river, with some crimps and a mantle. The process on this boulder was really nice. In my eyes, the first 2 moves (to arrive at the crimp) are the hardest and then it is fine after that. These 2 moves initially felt weird and difficult but ended up being technical, where drop knee, full crimp, and squeezing the pinch at first instead of crimping (focus on where to apply force) made them feel natural. Motivated to one day have this so intuitive to be able to flash a boulder like this!
