Nine Corner Bouldering: Lifeguard Training, Sit (V8), Whip Tide, Sit (V9)

The video below highlights two difficult boulder problems at Nine Corner Lake in the southern portion of New York's Adirondack State Park.  To my knowledge, Whip Tide, Sit has not seen a repeat ascent since I established it back in the fall of 2011 (if you have repeated it, please let me know and also let me know how difficult you think it is).  I also recently established the difficult sit start into Lifeguard Training (V5) and think that the sit start moves bump the problem into the V7/8 range.  It involves a really big and powerful move that shut me down for years...

I hope everyone is getting out there to climb on some rocks and I assure you that the Adirondack Bouldering Guidebook is nearing completion (anticipated printing date in late September, just in time for ROCK-tober here in the northeast)
