Jimmy Webb gets the first ascent of The Matriarch (V15) in Rocktown, Georgia. This boulder seems to be a completely opposite style to Terremer, another V15 we featured last week. The V15 club is still small and it would be interesting to see which climbers are the most well-rounded at this grade.
Well it’s done! Yesterday I climbed the FA of a sick new roof right in the middle of Rocktown. 6 days deep this season and it was beginning to turn into an epic. For 2 days I struggled doing a single move and for 3 more days I proceeded to fall off the last hard move. Luckily yesterday on my last ditch effort to finish it up I put it together perfectly and ended up on top for the First ascent. So psyched to add this amazing hard line to a place I love so much. ‘The Matriarch’ V15
