Sean McColl, Canadian currently living in France, attended the Hueco Rock Rodeo at Hueco Tanks, TX, the other day and made an impressive flash.
While Daniel Woods won the actual competition ahead of Jorg Verhoeven, McColl, who finished a close 3rd, made what must be the ascent of the day.
At 2:39pm on March 3rd, 2012, I made the second flash of Nagual V13 (8B) in Hueco Tanks. This is hardest flash I've ever completed.
Some of you will remember Nagual was flashed by Paul Robinson more than 4 years ago. Others have been close, but Sean was only the second to succeed.Sean McColl is sponsored by:
