Exciter Sit-Down-Start

There are plenty of good reasons why Exciter V7 is the most photographed boulder problem in the province
It has everything you could ask for:
  • Powerful compression
  • Technical footwork
  • Perfect holds
  • One-of-a-kind oceanside aesthetics
  • Crux highstep that upsets tall people
  • Decent landing
  • Thoughtful top out sequence
  • Morning shade

Chris Walker put down his nemesis project Exciter Sit V10 this weekend, and was kind enough to repeat it on camera. He’s been on a hot streak of hard boulders this year and he has no plans of slowing down (although he’s probably too polite to spray at you).

P.S. In case you were wondering, Exciter is named after Depeche Mode’s 10th studio album, not the 80’s Speed Metal band from Ottawa of the same name. This sort of trivia is very important to me.
