Heading up the wall in a couple hours with kieran and nate(a.k.a. Browniephoto and thesoloclimber)!!

Our plan is to climb Zorros Last Ride(V 5.8) A3+) into Lost at Sea(III 5.8 A3+). As far as we know Lost at Sea has only had 1 repeat attempt and that was by me and fishboy.

The stoke is over whelming!

I tried to solo Zorros a couple months ago... and retreated half way through the traversing nail straight up under the roof pitch.. time for redemption!

Pre spray photos comming after a couple cups of coffee

damn it Kid! I was supposed to work today. Now I have to wait breathlessly for the live feed update. Thats the final straw . I'm upgrading to I phone.

Hey while your up there, have a close look at the bolts and rivets. There was a bad batch of 1/4 inchers going around back then and a few wound up on the hooking pitch. Dave Lane was watching Daryl with binocs one day, standing on a little bolt after a nice long hooking section when - pop! Away he sailed, just pulling up short of the lip of the roof!

We expect a live report of every bolt inspection and a go pro of any whippers

Forgot to finish my whiskey and water last night... got called out by my wife. drinking it now... MMM whiskey for breakfast, that oughta get rid of the anticipation shakes.

its a familiar feeling this morning, pre adventure stoke, normally nate busts in the front door, but today we gotta go pick him up in horseshoe bay.

kierans out scavenging more water bottles, and Im going to pick up some reefer momentarily.

It should be noted that we are ascending fixed lines to below the roof, in order to maximize use of our time frame, plus we have all already free climbed the first 5 pitches before.

Oooh yeah..... The three sketchiest climbers in Squam attempt some A3+ where only one of those has any real aiding experience.
By the way, I have two surprises for you guys..... One is for us climbers, but the other is gonna be shared with everyone ;)
