Creature from the black lagoon 8C+ by Andy "Peter" Lamb

Andy Lamb, who did his first two 8B+' in 2019, has done his first 8C+, Creature from the black lagoon in RMNP. The great classical line was put up by Daniel Woods in 2016 and this was the eighth repeat.

"I had originally planned on focusing more on Blade Runner (right next to Creature), but on a lot of days it felt too baker to try Blade, so I’d work on Creature instead. I had a breakthrough day where I had a good go from the bottom, and I knew it was time to fully commit to becoming the Creature. The process was a bit up and down after that, I’d have sessions where I felt really good and then regress the next session. My send go was pretty unexpected to me, the holds had felt too hot when I was warming up, and I didn’t think I had a good chance. Just tried hard and surprised myself!"
