We just received the following from Richard Simpson, one of the young up and coming stars of British bouldering: Just letting you no that 2 days ago I made the secondascent of Mark Katz?s Caseg Groove Sit Down start, V12 (Font 8a+),at the Caseg Boulder in North Wales, Mark Graded thisproblem V12 and it has received a lot of attention froman endless list of strong climbers such as Welford,Vickers and most of the north Wales lot, but no-one has succeeded. I repeated this problem within about 30 minutes of first seeing and trying the line, and although it felt ok I cannot really suggest a grade as it suited me pretty perfectly, and I used a different sequence to Mark. Maybe it is V12 as I repeated Full power, a confirmed V12, in a similar time, but I don?t know, so shall agree with the Katz for the moment and wait for the third ascentionist to confirm. One thing is for sure, its possibly the best boulder problem that I have ever tried, 5 stars for sure, so come on boulderers get out and repeat it. On the same day as trying this problem I also came very close to repeating Pool of Bethesda, V12, until I got a flapper from the sharp porthole. The following day I made a quick ascent of Chris Davies?s Spoon Machine at the Pac Man boulders. I think Chris gave this problem V11, but I feel it is maybe a soft touch for the grade. It took me about half an hour.
