Fresh off a 3.5 month trip to Europe that yielded an impressive ticklist of 1 5.14d (Realization), 1 5.14c, 5 5.14b’s and 8 5.14a’s (3 onsight or flash), Ethan Pringle has returned to the U.S.
Despite having spent the past 3.5 months climbing routes, Ethan made quick work of Dominated (V13) in Yosemite Valley’s Camp 4. Dominated is the burly low start to Dominator (V12) which Ethan had climbed earlier this year. Elsewhere in the Valley, Ethan set his sights on two Dean Potter problems on the LeConte boulder. He climbed Sasquatch (V11) which he describes as “really tweaky mono finger locks in piton scars” as well as flashing King Air (V10). Pictured below, King Air starts on the shelf to the right of the woman and climbs up left to finish straight above her head.
