Moon Blog / Bouldering / Caley Highball..
So the winter bouldering snowballed into my first font 8B on grit. Its everything you would want from a bouldering problem. Spicy, nice holds, good landing, high but not too many moves (8 maybe).
High Fidelity is awesome, I had a bit of an epic in the end. The snow just seem to come in as soon as I had warmed up and was ready to go. This meant often covering the top and sprinting back to the van. I felt like I should have done this on day 3, I hit the pocket on move 6 with conviction as it felt like i was swinging from this jug for ages until my fingers peeled..gutted.
Anyway I did not give up and got it done. I felt like leaving it to next winter a few times but Im glad i did not. An hour after topping out the rains came and stayed for quite some time. I felt smug…
