Ben Moon’s Journals

Climbing legend Ben Moon has been posting some of his diaries from June of 1990 which was when he freed Hubble1  (5.14c), likely the hardest route ever done to that point.  Here is his current day reflection on his entry from the day he did the route:

That’s a funny entry. I’ve just climbed the hardest route in the world, complain of being tired and then spend the rest of the day training.

  1.  The route’s working name was apparently Whore so don’t be confused when you don’t see Hubble everywhere in the diary

    By way of background, the original aid line (which Hubble freed) was called the Whore of Babylon, hence the abbreviation.
