“Niko” first ascent. I’ve driven past this block a thousand times, finally checked it out and it ended up being the best line I’ve put up! Just above highway two, 200 feet east of milepost 53 and just past Skykomish, get it while it’s hot! 💥
The bunchy, upside-down first move of “Hueco Crimper Low” was really hard for me. It must have taken a few hundred goes to finally latch the slopey-pinch that leads to the rest of the problem. After a couple of angry night sessions, sticking the move and completing the problem was a perfect moment of triumph over self imposed limitations. Good times with two of my favorite blonde girls. @graceisabellarucker#honey#nwgranite
Another rough morning of failure. After 12 hard sessions, I still have not done Cool Whip. Couldn’t have really gotten any closer, but failure is progress I guess. Here’s the awesome consolation prize; “Miracle Whip”.
Peter going a muerte during his last few hours of Washington climbing. Racing against the scorching sun, he beasted his way to the top of the steep and powerful “Cool Whip”! Epic and inspiring to witness. Have fun in Colorado bro, we’ll miss yeah!
