Big boulder bend The big boulders

Whoa Nelly. This thing is really beaut. I really wasn't feeling the sketchy desperate RH dyno with the shitty right foot (not sure why) so tried a semi-static LH and was pretty surprised/stoked when it stuck 3rd go from the crimp rail. Tried a few times to do the full link and got close. Maybe next time

Like Skip said, very cool in its own right.

Was looking forward to seeing the boys get a solid session on this while I was on camera duty. They made short work of it with different beta and super stoked to see this get sent. It still needs the full link up to be done

V2 Grinder

Jumped on this in the faing dusk, had a couple goes and got up to the chip essentially at the top and jumped off just a bit wrecked. Wicked day of bicep funsies The couple very highball lines to the right look very enticing and pants wetting. Need to find about 10 pads and a big crew...

Jumped on this, expecting to get shut down hard as usual which I was, but somehow progress was still made. I can side pounce off the left rail, delicate right foot low to stabilize and I can just curl my tips over the lip (probably 10cm further than last times). Still need to get deep onto the top and it will be a wild swing if I can actually get there. Froth! Had a lot of goes, lost count, feeling very worked now afterwards.

Hard. Very little in the way of feet. Seems possible though. Fantastic fun throwing ourselves at it

This thing is sick. Threw ourselves at it a bunch and got close...but so far!

Ermagerd. Amazeballs. Took some unlocking. So much froth, so few eels.

Decide we couldn't leave this total gem undone. Will make a great lower grade classic with just a taste of highball exposure.

Low traverse into Rage

Worked this for a while, started to deplete energy. It's tantalizing! If it was off the ground it would likely go very quickly.

Eventually gave up and did a lap on the easy but classic stand start

Worked this for ages, trying various hand jams, fist jams, foot locks and generally had a ton of fun and burnt a lot of energy

Was mega excited to finally try this at low water. Had a few goes at this but just could not hold the sloper layback. Need more energy!

V3 Ataraxia (High ball)

Easy layback through the roof, got a bit tangled / scared at the bulge and bailed

V4 Ashley Madison crack (V roof)

Up layback then stretch out to finger lock, cut sick then powerful move slow down the barn door. Finally held the move but munted my finger, need to tape up next session

Sythe crack

Had a real feel, this thing is brutally sharp and thin, unpsyched

V4 Tonight I dine on turtle soup

Worked for ages with Carol and was getting pretty tired, walked away to take a photo and suddenly she'd done the dyno and was all tangled mantling the lip. Could slap the hold but didn't really commit to holding it, glad it was fully topped out this time

Climbs better than I thought - very happy to do the start static (Carol jumped past this first move)

A bunch of goes, two tiny feet work and within a couple inches of the top, but needs a lot more weetbix

V4 Tonight I dine on turtle soup

My back was feeling pretty broken by this stage, gave up went scouting. Came back for one last try or two and three and then caught it.

- with Will Goyen
Boulder 3m Good

V6 Jugtastic

It toggled back and forth between thinking it was way harder than I'd thought, and then slowly unlocking it. I did the far left start, traverse through the giant ledge and up to the second slopy rail. Just need to stick the sideways dyno to the top

This was heaps of fun, had a few spills into the water and had to chalk my shoes up heaps to dry them. I didn't link the full sit start

Took maybe a dozen goes to figure out where it went, was getting a wee bit thrashed at the end, great problem
