The Big Four

Fontainebleau has The Big Four: four of the biggest and best boulder problems. Grover also has The Big Four, four of the biggest and best boulder problems in Nova Scotia: Shotgun Willie's V7, No Conscience V7,  Elephant On My Back V7, and Buckle Up V8. 

Ghislain's aesthetic bold arete Elephant On My Back V7 was my last of the Big Four to go down, and aptly named since that's what it feels like as you do the blind foot match for the tricky mantle topout.

Very pleased to finish them all in a season. The next challenge is finishing them all in a circuit.

Helps to have a spotter to yell out foot adjustments. Also it's pretty tall.
