Brandon Lawson on Contemplate


Contemplate is a route that will require you to do just that. What looks like a blank wall will slowly reveal good edges, micro crimps and opportunities for subtle rests. But choose the wrong path and you'll quickly be back tracking in a desperate bid to re-milk that last good rest.

This route was put in ground up. After a decade of hand drilling on lead, this route in particular required every trick in the book from drilling off inventive, awkward stances to using a nut tool as a hook to drill from.
