Got 2/3s the way up, realised there weren’t any more draws. 😂

Sport 7c Priapos

Fumbled the crux clip, should have just skipped both draws and sent it. Wish I tried this at the start of the trip, very achievable for me.

Couldn’t remember enough to be useful, couldn’t get past the second draw! Sussed it, came down for another go.

Decided to quest into the blank headwall instead of using obvious tufa. What a plonker!

Blew the onsight by both falling and clipping a wrong bolt. Felt pretty nails!

Found a clutch knee bar that I previously missed right before the roof sequence, saved me I think! One of my favourite climbs on Kaly so far!

Project shopping continues! Found it much more straight forward than Agelias, cruxes are definitely harder but the moves are cooler. Maybe…

Honestly liked this way less than Ivi and found it harder. (Condys we’re super sweaty tho 🥵). Polished and wet not my fav tbh.

Sport 7b Ymir

Really nervous for some reason, Maybe because of a first 7b onsight opportunity. So amped the whole way up, couldn’t calm down. Very different style wise for Kaly, sharp and crimpy! Blew it at the crux. Calm down ya dickhead!

Bit tired but was the first calm pitch I had. Nice climb but rough on skin!

Sport 7b+ Valhalla

So shaky still, don’t know why. Totally my style, very à la Ceuse Cascade style, steep start followed by big moves on good holds on the headwall. So close to punting multiple times, only stayed on thanks to Matthias Lei spraying me down at just the right times. ‘Twas a battle!

One of those “warm ups” that didn’t really warm me up physically but kinda’ freaked me out mentally (it was a bit ledgy/weird) so I was kinda’ worse of than when I started! 🤷‍♀️

Sport 7c Aegialis

Blew a foot from a knee bar about 1/3 the way up on the onsight, not that I expected to onsight anyways! Was going pretty good till the tufa fins, then it gets pretty tricky. Thought this would be right up my alley with all the knee bars, but it still feels super sustained. Not sure if this will be my first 7c proj in Kaly.

Got a bit lost getting into the big tufa at the bottom, fought up around 1/3 of the way and punted off. First go trashed me!

Putting the draws on. Builds nicely in difficulty to a desperate crux. Tried going right a few times but nails sequence and could get to the tufa or get the last draw in.

Went well up to crux then wrecked myself getting through it. Danny Paradorn looked way closer but heartbreaking finish!

Last climb of the day so I could tick something! Knackered probably would have fallen off on anything harder. Cool route, big moves on big holds.

Missed the bloody obvious knee bar in the first boulder problem, I’m supposed to be the knee bar guy! 🤷‍♂️

Should’ve flashed at least the bottom crux tbh, oh well. Cool climb.

Sport 7b+ Chien Jaune

Last climb of the day. Fumbled a hold on the Boulder at the bottom and dropped it, pulled straight back on and had a good battle to the top. Nice sustained climbing. Will try again if I’m back there.

Sport 7a Melodrama

Very cool, gym like holds at the bottom, rad tufa fin at the top!

Nice intro to Kaly climbing. Put the draws on for Dale who said he’d clean it and didn’t!
