Struggle Bus (5.10+) at Lukenya Main Wall

I’m excited to share a new (?) crack line on the far right end of Main Wall. Perfect hands through a horizontal roof and into an overhanging stem slot – great, awkward movement and a satisfying grunt fest for any crack enthusiasts out there!

New Routes and Steep Classics

We had a great weekend climbing at Hell’s Gate and Lukenya! On Saturday, we had good fun exploring Spring’s Wall at Hell’s Gate. The first was a rope-stretcher: clean, varied climbing up solid rock in a beautiful wide corner crack leads to an exit that’s better than it first appears. The second was a great new route adventure up some more wide cracks and tricky slabs to complete ‘Reform’ (S 50m J. Tracy). Some other FAs await in this area!

Movie screening: Vertical Sailing Greenland

Let’s say it outright, these guys are insane. And not just because they decided to take a sailing boat to Greenland to scale impossible cliffs.

13442601_1583782945247367_2643471636370014133_oIn this five-part series, climbers Nico Favresse, Olivier Favresse, Seán Villanueva and Ben Ditto ship out for the summer with Captain Bob Shepton on his 33-foot sailboat in search of unclimbed big walls rising out of Greenland’s fjords. The nine first ascents made by the team, and the style in which they were made, garnered them a nomination for the 2011 Piolet d’Or. Video: Seán Villanueva.

As usual, all welcome to the MCK movie night! This time hosted by Blue Sky climbing wall.
