After spending some time route climbing at Rumney, where he repeated Jaws II, 9a+, Paul Robinson has returned home to Colorado where he has already repeated White noise, ~8C, and The Grey, ~8B+, both at Wild Basin.
This is how it went down:
The conditions have been so good the past few days. I knew I needed to capitalize on that and get out there as much as possible.
The next day the psyche remained high. I called everyone I could think of to go climbing, but everyone had to work or was going climbing elsewhere... So I decided to go for it anyway. I did the top of The Grey first on a rope since it is tall and scary. Then I started to try it from the bottom.
The sun set and I began packing up my things. I went to retrieve my static line. When I returned to the boulder I thought to myself that I hiked all the way out there so why not give it a few more efforts.
5 hours of hiking in 3 days. Ready for a rest day today.
So, what's next?
