One of my most memorable moments this year; First ascent of Good Hope (V13) in Rocklands! Hands down one of the best boulder problems I’ve ever climbed! It is so very rare to find a gem like this where everything comes together for a flawless boulder problem! It’s moments like this that make all the effort that we put into exploring worth it!

You have to be patient on the grit if you don’t want to get hurt. And to me, no route is worth getting injured over. We all have our ups and downs, good days and bad, and I try not to force myself when things aren’t right.
