By far the hardest and most proud thing I’ve ever attempted… I had a similar experience to Peter, epicing on this line for weeks and ultimately taking me ~12 sessions. I learned a lot from the experience and am immensely grateful for it. Huge shout out to Fanning for establishing the bolder, Ross & Peter for showing me the way, and Behrens & Daniel for the support along the way.
To the left of "Meat Sweats" - start on jug edge and gain excellent triangle pinch w/ left hand... shoulder your way into the top out of Meat Sweats. A bit contrived as you could easily exit left earlier... Lincoln Woods variation!
Overhung compression line above the cam cam boulder. Did it with Jack. The ginseng lookalike up there is call Jack-in-the-pulpit
Great conditions today made a big difference. Not 100% sure on the actual grade Ross gave it 7B but I’ll save those for Font. Definitely felt much harder last week, but either way excellent movement on unbelievable greenstone grips. Send trained it after Ross for the 2nd ascent.
By far the hardest climb I have ever done. In terms of the amount of physical, mental, and emotional effort, this is drastically beyond anything I have spent time on. It ended up taking 9 working sessions. I had very real sending chances starting on the fourth session. The mental anguish of returning to this thing over and over just to not be able to stick the first move 90% of the time and then continue to fall after the first move 30+ times really started to wear me down. I did the problem one hand move in 10 times. With the season coming to an end and injuries creeping in from trying the same moves over and over again I was getting really worried that it just wasn’t going to happen. After well over 100 attempts I am happy to have made it to the top. I have no idea how hard this actually is, if I had perfect beta at the start of this journey maybe I would have done it in a couple of session, who knows. All I know is that it was far harder for me than anything I have ever done it’s also a pretty good climb. Thank you Ross for the FA and getting me psyched enough to put myself through this.
Fantastic line on cryptic edges. Nice new one!
Tyler put up the FA yesterday. I was able to make the second ascent. The first/second moves were extremely difficult for me. Did it my first go sticking the gaston from the ground, but it was still a battle up to the choss jugs. The topout was terrifying. I was breaking footholds, crawling over moss, and almost ripping blocks off.
Love this climb - spooky and a bit loose at the top...
Nice one by Peter
