You know the drill. Walking around is boring, blah blah blah. Here’s some flowers or whatever. Scroll past that to see the good stuff, though: Leavenworth.
You made it! Sorry about all the flowers. I’ll make a bouquet later or something.
On Sunday Abby and I rolled out to Leavenworth and met up with our friends Aaron, Josh, Teal, and Stacey. We had a pretty short day, but an exciting one (for me, anyway). I got on Resurrection (the v8 stand, not the 10/11 sit) and was to my surprise able to do it in, like 30 minutes.
Aaron showed up a couple tries before i sent it, so there’s no photos of me on it, but I got a few of him working through the opening sequence of the sit start. Man, that thing looks gnarly hard.
After that we headed over to meet up with Abby by Twisted Tree, but on the way convinced Josh to give Prism a few goes. Apparently Jimmy Webb hiked it in his tennies as a warmup, but Josh isn’t quite as tall, so it was less fun for him. I still got a pretty cool photo of him on it, so that’s something.
After Twisted Tree and watching Josh casually cruise Twister [v7/8], we made our way up the canyon to try Tin Man [v6 stand, v7 sit]. It’s a really great problem, if you’re into heelhook compression. If not, it may not be the one to try. I thought it was fantastic.
Abby and Stacey got close on it, but no send for them this trip. Next time though!
I’m not sure if i’ll be able to blagablag next week as i will be out of town visiting friends, but the following week I should have some photos from Indiana, The Holy Boulders, and Kansas City. Stay tuned!
