I was hanging out by the bridge (not climbing, essentially) a few weeks ago talking to Tom and Lee and saw some crazy dude with a jacked up hand who just bailed off of Queen of Spades after a huge boulder crushed his hand.


Holy hell!


Has this route seen a third ascent yet??? Did homeboy fire???

Man. This route has some lore Tolkein wrote about it in Elvish.

The brave lad was hooking across a block when it came out in his face! Lucky to have walked away from that one but a proud committed effort on his part!

While we around the bridge, somebody on the Zodiac mindlessly leaned back and cleared off an attache case just to wake everybody up!

Blinny: "I heard that a Russian team also did it. I don't know of any other ascents."
