Check out this great video Colette McInerney put together of my process on Papichulo 9a+ in Oliana, Spain. This is a route I got really close to sending, but missed the bus on. Its been on my mind a lot throughout the past few months and I am eager to return for it. It took a lot of patience, strength, build-up, some good days, some awful days, and a lot of REALLY close tries to sending. What a process! Unfortunately it just didn’t happen for me. A route at your limit requires the entire package to come together in the right moment and setting all of those things up to happen is the duty. I love redpoint climbing for this reason. The process and the learning experience will last a lifetime and this is one aspect of rock climbing I adore.
Thanks Eastern Mountain Sports for all of the support and enabling me to live this life.
