Sport 26 Thor's Hammer

After seeing Will Gregson nearly flash the thing, I settled on the beta he used, tried real hard, hit the jug at the crux but cut feet and dropped with a suitable amount of screaming. Pulled back on and finished, came down feeling like it was do-able.

Sport 26 Thor's Hammer

Was pretty efficent up to the rest but definetly was feeling the previous goes, went up to the crux determined and pulled it off through sheer stubbornness that I didn't want Willy to beat me.

Sport 26 Thor's Hammer

Putting the draws on, spent quite a while trying the crux section a few different ways, none really felt particularly decent percentage.

Sport 22 Welcome to the Dark Ages

Tried this about a year ago but the crack was seeping so I was a bit spooked. Felt good today, went first try, fun warm up.

Sport 23 23/24 A Bridge to Far

Nearly fell off like the second move somehow! Other than that felt pretty comfortable. I’d probably give it 23 tbh. Fun lil jaunt to finish good day of climbing.

Sport 26 Hercules Returns

After watching Will Gregson and gsmizz find sequences that worked for them, tried Will’s on the second burn and to my surprise it went. 🤷‍♀️

First climb of the day, felt miles better while fresh! Will Gregson put the draws on this time too which definitely helped. Pretty happy with this red dot.
