I want all the spray about your sick indoor proj at your local gym, extra points for inflated grades, bouldering and using the word "sick" excessively.

I haven't been able to get that white V2 at the back end of the gym at Movement Boulder, but it's up for a few more weeks, and I have high hopes.

I finished the orange traverse from midway point to the top for the first time yesterday!

Oh, and the purple. I figured out the last two moves on the purple route, and did it from the start to the finish crux with only one fall (and couple light dabs).

So delighted!

I onsighted the red VII (French 6b/YDS 5.10d) while exploring my new local gym in Berlin. Although I did jump off at the anchor before clipping it for a some practice whipping. I've seen the pros do this, so I'm counting it as a send. It on the outdoor wall section, so I had to deal with the elements and exposure of being outside in the cool, humid air, under fluorescent lights, nontheless.

I know the one you’re referring to. I flashed it after you walked away from it. J/K... That’s at least V4 in Movement ratings. Maybe V1 at Flag.

Is this really the first MP thread where the word “sick” hasn’t been mentioned in a half dozen responses?

It really exposes most of my weaknesses in climbing - namely: I can't climb very well. 

I'll kinda feel like this tho, if I get that damn V2,


Flagstaff V1 (I think?)

I flashed that pink V6 even though the holds were all super greasy.

The Purple Hard- was too difficult I had to skip a few holds to send it. Probably Easy+

I got a new hangboard for the basement.  It's blue.  Can't hold the pinches without taking 100lbs off, maybe if I get some head-banger music...

Not to toot my own horn, but that V2 has been crushed. Since I'm the only one I've personally ever seen do it, I'm claiming a first ascent.,

I left an old sardine can at the top of the route with the last piton left from the expedition. That should prove all without any doubt.

I've sent literally hundreds of 5.13's all over the world, but back in the mid 90's there was a blue tape 13b? at Paradise Rock Gym in Denver that took a protracted amount of self-loathing to do. It took me 5 days of tries and in the end I had to beg Kurt Smith to not take it down. Kurt actually called me at work one day and apologized saying "sorry dude but there wasn't space on the lead wall to leave it up any longer" just so he could listen to me shriek some kind of apoplectic meltdown. I just think it's funny how some indoor route can so clearly stick out in my head apart from so many other real climbs over the years. I know I know, I'm totally a cut-rate, below average never was, but fuck I was so pumped to FINALLY fire that thing..
