Yesterday was our first day out and we were all pretty jet lagged. I got close on a couple of very nice problems but the highlight of the day was Herm climbing Ganymede Takeover 8A+. Well done Herm!

    For real – you guys are so demanding. Herm will “Do it” when he feels good and ready. He just happened to be ready that go!

    As with a lot of newer areas grades are all over the place here, but I think we would all agree that Ganymede is certainly no harder than V12

    Wasn’t this one of the V13s James Pearson flashed? Good thing he has others.
