Waterhouse Sends Cuckoo Crazy Projects

Alex Waterhouse has been taking advantage of the recent crisp conditions to take a peek at the long standing projects at Combeshead Tor AKA Cuckoo Rock. Alex managed to make successful ascents of projects listed on the Javu Combeshead Bouldering Guide as problems 84 (Hanging Flakes Bloc) and 68, right of the granite classic, Proof of Concept – V5.

The first problem to be ticked was Aurora, V8, found on the back of the Hanging Flakes Bloc just left of the 5c crack. On the same boulder, Mike Adams ticked the project line and named in Side Effects, V10 and several other projects on the moor (video below back in August. Not yet satisfied of ticking projects, Alex returned to Cuckoo Rock furthermore to forge his way beside Proof of Concept and extrapolating Hypothesis, V9/10.
