Year Climb Grade Style Ascent Date
2021 Bone Tomahawk 9a+ Lead | worked 24th May 2021
2022 Resisting Arrest 9a Lead | worked 17th Jun 2022
2023 Martial Law 9a+ Lead | worked 11th Jun 2023
One Hundred Proof 9a Lead | worked 9th Dec 2023

Cameron suggested downgrade to 9a due to new Kneebar Beta.

”One Hundred Proof” has been a route that I’ve always had plans of trying to do. It is a somewhat well known J star FA in the Vegas/ Southwestern USA climbing scene. What made it stand out to me is that it has been left unrepeated for the last few years since the FA. This climb got its long-awaited second ascent! I am suggesting a down grade because a few days before I sent, I found a new knee bar rest that definitely lowered the intensity of the climb a bit. I thought that since some crucial hands and feet broke off while I was climbing on it, the breakage would potentially even out the difficulty with the new knee. I really wanted this climb to remain 9a+ but in the end I still think the route is probably just really solid 9a (the way I did it). And personally one of the harder 9a's I've done since its style is not my forte lol.

I’m super appreciative of Andy Raether and J star’s vision on this route and hope it gets more attention in the future!
