Epinephrine
May 10, 2022 · Lead / Redpoint. w/ Josh! Ten years later from my first ascent with Ivan. Same rope, but I'm retiring it after this climb. This climb was quite a journey. Woke at 4am after hardly sleeping in the Tesla due to the wind. It was still windy and cold (46 degrees). We braved it into the canyon, making a wrong turn and heading up a gulley which fortunately didn't cliff out and we were able to traverse onto the main area below Black Velvet wall. Chimneys were really physically demanding (almost got a #5 C4 stuck) and the upper pitches were a joy. The descent was a bit of a slog. 13 hours car to car. Ethiopian food afterward. For a rack we had basically a double rack and singles from 3 to 5. It was perfect for the long pitches. We did the same pitches as Ivan and I did 10 years ago but I led the opposite ones. What a day!
