Lacking That Small Match Temperament

Anyone who's climbed in Nova Scotia for long enough will immediatly recognize the image below. Bop Gun V5 is most famous for it's hard piano key match on a unique polished ledge. The move is exactly midway through the climbing, midway up the boulder. It's an aesthetic and defining feature of this climb. 

However, loved by people with tiny hands, it's decidely less fun for climbers with thick fingers. If you fall in the later category, here is some very slick beta courtesy of Fynn Sagar that is a complete game changer for your enjoyment of this climb!

Ofcourse, another option to avoid the match is to just add 4 V-points and dyno to the top like Ben Smith did in his recent repeat of Bop Gun Direct V9
