First ascent.

Tall overhang with explosive and powerful moves and very few footholds. One of the most amazing sequences I can think of! So simple, yet so intricate. A dream come true!

Aidan Roberts Boulder (Flash) Apr 2023

As is often the case with my more considered flash attempts, it’s usually the encouragement of others which inspires a good first go. This time it was [Keenan Takahashi] and [Daniel Woods] whom recommended it and kindly gave me some good advice. It certainly makes sense. The climb prides itself in simplicity. Isolate on a small right hand and drive into the left foot to gain a lovely pinch. And only a few large moves create a tall and proud face of climbing.

Between intermittent rain showers and wavering motivation at the idea of a soggy top-out slab, a weather window opened and I was able to top out on my flash attempt, a great feeling! [2]
