Project Day 2

Today was the true day one on my project. I made some really good progress from my few brief attempts earlier this week. The crux is a 3 move sequence that revolves around some really small crimps. I was able to stick the first of the 3 moves but the other two are so so so hard! I got kind of close to sticking both the other moves. They are both going to take a long time to do and to link them is going to be a whole different story! I am so psyched to keep working on this amazing line!

This project though quite amazing is very sharp! I think that after today’s effort I may have to take two rest days to heal my tips up before I am able to try the line again.

give us a clue as to what this project is! It's hard to tell from the photo. I'm assuming it's not the left hand version of Ganymede although 3 moves on small crimps sounds about right. That looks a lot easier than some of Gaskin's problems!

Best of luck with the project. Hope you crush.

sup Paul,

in order to send your project, you might need a better breakfast. No more coco crispies... maybe some eggs and bacon (or at least a mix some fruit (loops) into your coco crispies... ha.

I'm getting my trainer problem at CATS wired - I need a harder one. Hope you're having a blast.

Heya Paul,
I just heard about your broken tibia! jeez that must hurt! :( I hope you're doing okay...that's too bad that your epic trip is ending prematurely.

Anyway, I just wanted to wish you well and that you have a good and speedy recovery! take care and I hope you get well soon so that you can get back to climbing strong!
