Why do I always have the strangest beta...... Who know's? I managed to get it the second day on after punting 3 times the day prior. With the bottom dialed, I did a little out-of-the-box thinking for the top out, then fired it off first redpoint burn of the day. Truly a spectacular bloc. I was stoked to climb it every time I pulled on!!
Definitely the most visually appealing line at Big Rock. Amazing 3D features. It's certainly compression, but a lot more technical and beta intensive than I think it gets credit for. Honestly didn't feel like it was that much harder than other compression blocs in AB like Squeezing, Dragon Fire, or Little Worm, but big squeezies are definitely my style.
Best boulder Ive done in Alberta so far. Ended up going with the toe hook beta because it felt easier. I have to come back and do straight compression, burly style with no right toe hook, more of a challenge and how I was trying it originally. It felt greasy today but glad it went. Ran out of storage on the phone recording the initial send burn but luckily I could clear some storage and had enough gas in the tank to send it off the very next burn. You should do the topout for the full experience, its easy and satisfying
Definitely my hardest ever! So stoked! I always thought it was too hard for me but quested into it. Took 4 sessions to figure out the body mechanics on the crux move, then it seemed to all come together quickly. Sent it by a big glowing red orb of a forest fire sunset
