Making moves on the third pitch of Waking Dream. 5.11+/A2
That day when I was approached by Noh and he asked if I wanted to do 'something special for 60th Merdeka' i knew this would be one hell of an adventure.
Drag my mate, Ridzuan Hussin and Raouf Arif for this adventure and they agree without hesitation. Soon after, Noh recruited Azlan Zarool and he agree to join us in this pursuit. A team was born. Prior to all that, I remember in one of my early conversation with Ridzuan. He said "Free climbing it? That's 5.13 Izzu. A no joke grade and it's goddamn trad climbing". We still proceed with it obviously.
Waking Dream is such a historic line. Kudos to Scotty Nelson and Nick Tomlin for making the first ascent along with strong local team Rozaman, Sharin along with Abdullah Danial, Akmal Noor and Al Haleq who took the second ascent. Major respect to Dave Sherratt and Hank Jones who free this line back in 2004 and grade it at 5.13a. More like 5.13aR 😂😂
