Second day on it Second try from the start today. I can't believe that Top Notch is my first 8B..... It's AMAZING! Its one of the best boulders I have ever climbed!
Thanks everyone for the support! It was a big breakthrough for myself and big props to Tyler Landman for putting Top Notch up. That would be a dream to put something that amazing up one day!
