Welp, hot damn the start of this thing was like getting covered in honey then turning around to see a grizzly bear licking it lips. You get up to run away but you trip and fall into a fire-ant mound.
You might not be enjoying everything in the moment, but if you get out alive you have a story to tell and you wouldn't change a thing.
This is very protect-able, find the hidden number two in the back for the start. Fist-jam and levitate. I went left to the crimps and armbars, apparently you can do it going right, too. Got my got foot stuck for a couple minutes, contemplated trying to take my shoe off and attempting to finish the climb before it popped out. Also I was very happy, I didn't eat before this or else it would have turned into slimy offwidth.
Once, I returned to consciousness and made it to the stance 15ft up. I looked up and saw this beautiful arching crack that just ate up finger sized cams.
A good thrutch is needed for a healthy lifestyle.
