Project Complete!

I am really happy as of yesterday I completed my route. I put in about 12 days or so figuring out moves, trying links, and then pushing for a send. This is one my babies and I am really proud of it since I bolted the line, cleaned it for days and now did it… What a feeling!!! A spectacular style in horizontal climbing with moves getting harder, and holds getting poorer toward the end. You know what that means… Epic finish! And that it was. I yelled, clamped the feet, tried my ass off and yeah… the route never got easier. Never. That’s when I know it’s a hard one.

It’s called “Flight Of The Conchords”.

About the grade? Well… when comparing it to the “new-school” 9a grade in Catalunya, Spain it cannot be. I don’t know if thats a smart thing or what, but it seems like the right thing for now. Lets go 8c+ and see what happens.

  • hasan - Hi
    congratulations on sending your project.

    what drill do you recommend to someone who has never bolted routes before. I go to university of maine and want to start bolting some lines and was wondering what drill you also use…
