Cobble Killer 5.13b/c
The next day we had made plans to go to Pipedream but after our warm up at Box we decided to stay there for the day. Hayley had fallen off the last few moves of Grip Tease and I was interested in trying Body Dump 5.13c. I ended up finding a good sequence through the bottom boulder problem, which weighs in around v7/8, and fired it second go as well. I woke up fairly sore Sunday but I was pretty determined to make it up to Pipedream so I could get completely wrecked before heading home. I had tried Sheep Shagger 5.13d and The Great Feast 5.13c a week prior and was psyched to get back on both. I held off on my second burn on Sheep Shagger because I thought I had a good shot at doing it second go. This time I fired through the crux and found myself at the chains where I could hear my friend Clay yelling to keep going. I was wicked pumped but tried anyways. I kept going up the extension of Pipedream 5.14a and fell in the crux...right before a MASSIVE jug rail where you can get an upside down double kneebar. After a long rest I hopped on The Great Feast for an end of the day enduro burn and ended up doing that as well! All in all it was a good weekend and I have completed all my projects. I'm off to Maple again tomorrow and Wednesday so I'm sure I'll have at least one project by the time I get back.
