I Couldn't sleep very well last night, so I decided to see what I could pull out of the photos Luke sent me...

Starting Salathe wall



I'm guessing this is night one based on how much whiskey is in the bottle...

Jsmith was trying to post this..

Ps Too bad you deleted your post.

Quoted from here

Spied this line while working the Gunslinger with Ben Harnden last spring, gave it a light brushing and started attempts.

I put a lot of time in to this last year, falling at the crux many times. Almost sent it a couple times, but my climbing season was shut down for the rest of the year when I fell at the wrong spot breaking bones in my hand.

This year I changed my tactics and spent 6 weeks specifically training for the route. On the first lead go this year I fell early in the crux and ripped the gear, taking a unexpected big fall. Had a few moments of second guessing but decided to give it another go just for sh*t's and giggles, and found myself topping out.

The crux is after the top of the 5.12 corner shared with The Gunslinger. Tiny crimps and huge moves with glassy or no feet. I figure about V11 to the next rest and pro, followed by a bit of a heartbreaker finish. It's safe(ish) to fall early in the crux but falling after is a really bad idea.

Thanks to all whom I wrangled into belaying me.

Here's some rough footage I threw together from last years efforts.

Well, at least a pair of my pants made it up el cap. Good to see u puttin some miles on those things Kieran.

Bruce, had a great trip. Sadly, weather aversion tactics needed to be applied so got burned on most of the tower plans. Still managed to climb 9 days straight on the sandstone tho. Boulder, gear, sport, multipitch. Can't wait to go back.


Edit- holy sh#t Jeremy, proud send dude! Ur really strong in the brain this season it seems. Was this before that route on cacademon(what was the name?)? Killer photo too.
