Kehl continues highball blitz

Jason Kehl continues highball blitz on After Midnight (V10) at Camp 4, Yosemite Valley.

It's thought-to-be the first unroped ascent of the Camp 4 problem, just left of the famed Midnight Lightning (V8). Jerry Moffat first climbed the problem on a top rope because of its height and because a tree grew dangerously close to the boulder. But for Kehl, who is quickly gaining a rep for pushing bouldering's heights, anything but an unroped ascent wouldve been less satisfying: "It feels more personal -- just you and the rock."
