June 22, 2010 – Pidgeon Sends The Summoning Sit
Thomasina Pidgeon continues to demonstrate the form that has made her one of North America’s top female boulderers. Taking advantage of the recent dry conditions, Pidgeon focused her attention on The Summoning Sit V12, a steep square prow that was first climbed about two years ago. Pidgeon had tried the moves last season but the fall rains prevented her from completing the problem. Returning to the problem this spring, Pidgeon finally bagged the ascent after falling on the last move nine times. The Summoning Sit involves powerful squeezing on non-existent holds and requires dry conditions for success. Pidgeon continued her sending streak with a quick repeat of Tim’s Face V11 and Bigglesworth Low V10 which was also climbed by the young female powerhouse Clarrie Lam.
