Full video 3-min on my instagram tv channel .
"walk on the wide side" 5.10a wall street, moab, utah.
got the onsight of this awesome offwidth. decided to go for it after realizing that it and the inevitable run out kind of scared the c**p out of me. (to be fair i bumped my number 6 cam like 6 times and in 2 different sections lol)
glad i did too because it was so sweet, still stoked on it.
took me over 30 minutes to send so my camera ended up shutting off right after the crux but w.e the last 10 feet were a f*****g blessing after that squeeze.
gotta say for 5.10a its definitely easier that vedauwoo 5.9 lol. "walk on the wide side" 5.10a wall street, moab, utah.

Got the onsight of the rad invert boulder problem, "the a**l flair" that was discovered by @matt_likes_climbing and @tradprincess. super sweet line guys!
liked this problem so much i ran 3 laps on it, each with improving beta, not to difficult though when on your first attempt you miss some pretty obvious face holds! lol 😆

6 94 Yesterday
My view for two days, looking straight up and out of the dungeon into the great blue beyond.
i was here, in vedauwoo throwing myself at my hardest ow and boulder problem i have ever faced, to push myself, my limit.
after 2 half days of committing chicken wing inverts, squeezing my body through slots and almost getting stuck i came very close to pulling out of the crux, but alas i did not send.
my attempts on the second day were progressively the furthest i've gotten through the problem, pushing me to try just a little harder next time. "chimney sideways, invert off chicken wing, bring feet over head and out the lip, descend face first to squeeze torso through the lip, chicken wing the lip, bump feet, bump chicken wing, bump feet, bump chicken wing, pull hips into the lip, try and go hands free to hand fist stack, pull body up, stack, pull body up, stack..."
a stack or two before the end i fell out of the crack, hit the pad and seen perfectly round dots dispersed along it.
rain.
the end of my day and effectively the end of the vedauwoo climbing season. it continues to rain this weekend and monday brings the snows. "the warden" v8 has eluded me this season, but in this place i have found solace and i will return, stronger, hungrier, appreciative and willing to suffer. with stronger skills and a sharper mind i will find myself back in this holy land of beauty and pain.
video of my last attempt maybe coming...

Here's a throwback to my first day in vedauwoo while i'm training my spi drills for my upcoming assessment.
getting my onsight on the classic line "finally" 5.9 on the nautalis.
a true vedauwoo "testpiece" for aspiring ow leaders, put up in 1974 by dave stiller on his 7th attempt. upon topping out dave screamed "finally!!!"
