"I tried "Clockwork Orange" two years ago but was not able to climb it, so I was really psyched to finish off this boulder. Although I didn’t really remember the moves, I could climb it pretty quickly, so I had plenty of time to try something else. After climbing some easier boulders, we decided to try „Antwoord“. At first, we struggled a lot with the first move and it rained quite a lot, so the top out was completely wet. Yet, after drying the top out and finding a heel for the first move, I could do it in my first send go!"
