I managed to get a short chat with Paul after his FA of Lucid dreaming
, a problem that's most likely among the hardest on the planet:Hey man! Congrats! You've been working a long time for this!Ahh I know!
I've almost made it home too, I'm in a hotel in Utah about to go to bed!Have you celebrated enough though?Hahah not at all! I sent, re shot some moves and drove 10 hours Just one question then, hm.... can you describe the problem and what makes it so difficultof course... so to describe the problem-
beautiful, it is so pure to me. Really brings forth every style of climbing from power to crimp strength to technique, which is what makes it so hard.
I feel that the line is such a crazy culmination of style that it takes such accuracy to execute. Not only do you have to climb an insanely hard boulder but also climb a very heady 5 ft slabWas it mostly mental or physical for you?
In the end I meanI think both. I mean I knew I could do it. I had the physical, and it was linking the two
in one burn to make it all work.Thanks Paul!
I'll catch up with Paul again for a more extensive interview later.Photo: Paul Robinson on the crux of Lucid dreaming, Buttermilks, by Wills Young
