As seems to be the norm after returning from an extended absence from technology, I’m having a hard time processing all that happened in the world of climbing since we left for HP40 Friday morning. I see that Daniel Woods did the FA of Desperanza (an extended version of Fred Nicole’s Esperanza (V14)) during the Hueco Rock Rodeo and there is an interesting debate taking place about his decision to drop the V15 number on it.
Other than that there are several interesting stories worth sharing that I hope to have for you tomorrow. In the meantime here is the trailer for Chuck Fryberger’s upcoming movie Core, which is notable for being the first climbing movie slated to be released on Blu-Ray. I’m not sure how many people are going to want to throw down $40 for this version of the movie, but it’s cool to have it as an option.
