AR Trip

Well, winter break is over and the spring semester has started. I had a great break from school and decided to finish it right with a little trip to Arkansas last week. Nate Draughn, Rami, Jimmy, and I left for our 8 day trip last Saturday. The beginning of the week was FREEZING. Highs in the lower 20s made for slow mornings and climbing required a small fire in order to keep warm.

My main goal for the trip was Chunk up the Deuce V12 and after a few days of work Nate and I were able to piece it together. Super psyched to have this one done...it is the epitome of what a hard problem represents to me and the fact that it is not in my style made it even more fulfilling to complete. Other than that I was able to do a few classics in the area including Buddy V10 flash, Kneeling Before Power V10, Tang V10, Typhoon V10, 52 to 1 Cardeck V9, Moondye V9, Fat Boy Deluxe V8, and Orbital Mechanics V8.

I have a little bit of video from the trip that I haven't had a chance to mess with but as soon as I get to it I'll be sure to post it.   Until then, here's a video Jimmy put together of our 8 day stay in Arkansas...

I'm hoping to make it back to AR sometime in February as well! Unfinished boulders to complete before it gets warm again!
