Mina climbed loads of hard problems, as did David, and we featured Mina's ascents in a few UKC News Items last November and December.
Now we have a set of nicely put together videos from David Mason, mainly featuring Mina, but with a few clips of David too.
If you're thinking of going bouldering in the USA (yes please!) then check out these videos that will be popping up on UKC over the course of the next few weeks.
The first one was Joe's Valley highballs, and now we have Joe's Valley: Left Fork Classics.
Here Mina introduces Joe's Valley: Left Fork Classics:
"Wills of Fire, Lumbar Jack and Beyond Life are all on one face of one boulder; a stunning wall that showcases Utah's impeccable sandstone. Beyond Life was hard for me, I got stuck at one move and would fall at the same place every time. This kind of experience on any boulder problem can become very frustrating and psychologically challenging. On a long trip, climbing day in day out, one can lose perspective and getting to the top of a boulder can become all consuming. Needless to say it is very satisfying when you push through the barrier and hold that move!"
