First 5.13! The big throw at the end seemed impossible to do from the ground the first day on it so I tried using the arete for the next two sessions, no dice. Once I had the first two boulder problems more dialed I went back to the original beta and it went first go. Psyched! 4 sessions.
2nd go! Very psyched. 1st go pumped out at the V5 move at the end. 2nd go tweaked some beta so i could rest a bit more and voila. I can not give enough credit to Scott for this send. He spoon fed me this thing - from warm-up beta to how to clean the draws. Huge thanks and appreciation. Can't comment on sport grading for obvious reasons. The boulder grade breakdown in the description makes sense to me!
So much training went into this that I fully expected it to go first try today and it did. It felt a tad anti-climatic for first 8a but throughly enjoyed the process nonetheless. 7th day on it so definitely not my longest project.
