Lincoln Lake

Posted on 10. Aug, 2010 by in News

Friday I went to Lincoln Lake with Chad Greedy, Luke Parady, George Capps and others. It was another great day in the mountains. We all went to work on Phobos V12, a new steep problem Dave Graham put up right before he left town for the trade show. The others had been working on it for a bit, and had some really good beta figured out. This is another problem that is destined to become popular. The holds are great and the moves are gymnastic and unique. Motivation was high for all. It was the great kind of session where every climber is just hungry to pull on and go for it. I fell once off the tricky mantel topout, a bit pumped, and climbed it a few tries later. I’m not sure if this will hold at V12, I think it could be V11, but it’s a great problem nonetheless.

I have also been trying Evil Backwords V14. This is such a cool roof and I feel that deep motivation again to try very hard. The weather ever so slightly hinted at the coming fall, and I look forward to the cool temps, dry air, and the turning colors of the tundra.

    Whats the name of problem just upslope from this and towards the warmup triangle? The one with the steep sloper/pinch rail that hits a highball juggy crack to finish.
