Starting the short boulder problem on Broken Desir...


I extended Broken Desire to the lip of the cave on my 43rd birth day. It adds some length and difficulty to the climb. It felt like 13b, although I was sick that day. It was a great tease of what challenging lines are to come out of that cave.

Way to go, Ed. I'm psyched to hear you gave this route the extension it deserved and look forward to additions to the cave!
