"The last remaining Joe Brooks project from over 20 years ago! And I can see why... Climb Atlantis, and then blast directly -no rest- into an outrageous, heroic roof boulder problem. It felt SO good to finally stick the blind campus move. Elated! I lost track of the days, but as far as effort invested it is on par with anything I've done in the cave. Word on the street is that Big Frank fell going for the lip in the early 2000's... so impressive. No kneepads. 9a/+." In 2001, Francois Legrand published an article about their USA trip.

Did you any specific training for the send?
No specific training just trying to make time once or twice a week to try it, as I’m prioritizing my training for spain right now. I leave for Catalunya on Sunday. Can’t wait!
