It's been about 5 months since I tore my bicep and have been struggling to climb pain free, and this send marks the end of a dark chapter. So incredibly psyched and grateful to be feeling good again! This climb is so powerful, crystal whispery, tensiony, and low percentage. I punted and dabbed on the last move a few goes prior and was pretty afraid it wouldn't go, but I'm stoked it did :)
So psyched! Damn this thing was hard. Feels like, for me, the hardest thing I've done. It definitely took more work than any other boulder. This climb was so close to my limit if my skin or conditions were even a tiny bit poor I'd get totally shut down. A bit of a frustrating process but it sure felt awesome on the send.
