Canopener Re-opened?

Word on the street has it that, thanks to a visiting Japanese climber, the classic V10 Canopener in Poudre Canyon, CO had its likely first ascent Saturday since a key start hold broke off.  Apparently without this key hold the grade of the problem might be bumped up a grade or two.  Sorry Sock Hands…

Here is some video of Jamie Emerson climbing Canopener last year…first you have to sit through footage of him climbing Circadian Rhythm (V13) though.

    This was more my way of throwing out a fishing line to see if anyone else had heard about this in order to confirm/expound upon relavant details…

    The emailer thought his name was Gaida but was unsure

    I missed seeing the actual ascent but when I walked over the 420s last saturday, morning/early afternoon (4/6), people were talking about it. And then the guy who climbed it (Gaida?? from chiba outside tokyo) came over and I asked him about it.  He said he thought is was harder than V10 but didn’t say how much harder (he never climbed on it before the break).  it will obviously take some more sends before it is determined if it has gotten significantly harder.  another thing, is that the new start hold doesn’t look like it will last that long either.       Oh yeah, I also don’t know if that was truly the first ascent since the hold broke but it is definitely the first we had heard about and there are none logged on 8a.nu. anyone?

    I’ve had a handheld can opener for almost 5 years and its still going strong. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cool and reliable can opener.
