Another Week Gone By

Toping out on Lovers tiff V10 FA
The new Cliff
Another week gone by and its getting hotter and hotter. I went to crumbly and wanted to try a new line that I thought would be cool, The line goes from Mushi brain V8/9 and into the start hold of Abacus V12. Instead of figuring out the moves going into Abacus I sat down at the start and had a shot I fell of near the end of Abacus but new I could do it pretty soon so I had a quick rest and went for another shot,I got to Abacus and felt good and went for it I nailed it perfectly and sent the new problem packing. I called the problem SUGOI apparently it means excellent in Japanese and I have graded it V13.

Also this week I went to a new bouldering area at Balmoral. This cliff is little but it has a few cool problems I did the first accent of a new problem on the far left of the cave that i flashed I called the problem Lovers Tiff. I think its about V10 There is a left exit to the same problem that i think is about V8

I have climbed the cave! after many years of dreaming about climbing this amazing piece of rock I have Finally done it. its so crazy 68 moves long and every move is a classic.
I went down to the grampians for a short 4 and a half day trip with mark and Tilly.
We went up to the cave on our first day. I warmed up a little walked to the back of the cave sat down looked to the skyline where the finishing holds where and went for it.

I had fallen 13 times right at the end moves on the wheel, but this time I hit everything perfect and I was standing on top of the cave. I could not believe it, it was an amazing feeling and ill never forget that feeling.
Mark got the actuall send on video so check back here for a link to the video soon.

Grampians Agian

well looks like I'm going to the Gramps again next week to try the wheel.

I'm going down there for 4 days its a long way to go for 4 days (13 hour drive) but hopefully it will be worth it.

I will compete in the Oceania onsight comp and the Australian nationals this weekend even though i have not been climbing routes, well the wheel is a long problem but i don't think it involves much endurance, i mean when i was climbing routes and had good endurance i could not get close to the wheel and now that i have been bouldering I'm really close its crazy i think you need a good mix. Stay tuned for more updates.
