Allow me to introduce “The Wall of Power”. or WOP

40 degrees overhanging using a mixture of holds from fixe, top30, planet holds and blue arrow and Ben Moon School Room holds.
I have read that people leading 6c+ consistently on redpoint are bouldering consistently font 6a. The easiest problem in the Ben Moon set is 6a and I can’t do it! I have redpointed 6c+ and got it second go. But those moon holds really hurt the fingers. They’re all quite sharp and crimpy. Each time i touch them I can feel an injury comming on. Bit ironic as moon’s site says that half crimps are the best training grip. But i hope to get the 6a done in the next couple of weeks. If I can get some harder 6a’s done then 7a redpoint shouldn’t be too hard.
