Dave Noden demonstrating the sequence on Corridors of Power V11/8A photos: Jack Rattenbury



The autumn bouldering season is here and Dave Noden has hit the ground running. Following on from his success on the Crafnant boulders he cleaned up an old project line in the Llanberis Pass.

Corridors of Power V11/8A can be found in a slightly hidden corridor at the left side of Craig Bryn Hel (which is home to Spikeful), the craggy area on the opposite side of the river to Craig Ddu. The problem goes from sitting and finishes with a highball top out.

Dave explains:

Its ballpark V11/8A. I shunted the top moves as falling would probably hurt, but I did move some blocks to fill the hole and make a flat-ish base. Its got a two finger pocket on the egyption move that has crumbled a lot but I think it is stable now. Probably worth 2 stars. More sustained than cruxy. Very nice.
