That was fast. Here's the footage of Nic killing Chumscrubber (V12) today. Photos soon if I don't get lazy.

So hot right now

I'd like to take a moment to complain about how hot it is. Heat makes boulder problems hard. And it grows mosquitoes. And it makes people grumpy. Okay, that's enough. Photos of people climbing on rocks as promised...
