Yesterday I made a day trip to Joe’s Valley and swooped up some sends on a couple of mini projects: Vertical Ice and Baldwin Bash(seen here).
Vertical Ice is a super aesthetic prime line on an ever-so-slightly over hanging face consisting of mostly 2 and 3 finger pockets and edges from start to finish. It offers a pure style of climbing, holding on with nothing but the very tips of your fingers and standing on edges no more than a quarter inch thick.
Baldwin Bash begins with a few powerful moves on a roof then finishes with an awesome techy mantle over a perfectly rounded lip/bulge using some wicked slopers. This Boulder is simply amazing the way it transitions like this. It makes me think of something you might see in Fontainbleau, but I haven’t actually been there so who knows!
Syked to have sent both of these problems. Both are top notch in my book!!
