Graham McGrenere:Crux: left hand jug, right hand textured side pull. Walk feet out left, right foot just right of knob. Cross right hand to bad 3 finger pocket, move left foot to toe scum near right foot, cross right hand to good pocket. Walk feet around until out right and get a knee scum above right hand, left foot toe hooks. Left hand to tufa as an undercling. Fall in to match, bump right hand to jug and laugh all the way to the chains
Dan Beland:5.12 into one pretty solid boulder problem. A really good rest then some more 5.12 to the top.
Went down last burn of the day. Funny how much it helps to climb with low expectations sometimes. Very engaging crux, really helped to dial in the foot work micro beta. I was pretty stumped when I first got on it. Definitely helped to watch and get beta from Graham.
After 17 years of climbing, my first 5.14 What an amazing journey to get here and what an amazing route. Had to work hard for this 23 tries over 6 days. Thanks to everyone who climbed with me at Horne lake this summer and a huge thanks to Andrea for being so supportive.
