About two years ago Paul Robinson made a trip to Red Rock Canyon outside Las Vegas leaving behind a couple V13 FAs, one of which was called Meadowlark Lemon. Robinson initially climbed Meadowlark Lemon from a stand start while the full line starting from a sit start remained a project…until yesterday.
Robinson is back in Vegas and according to 27Crags he linked a V13 sit start into the original V13 stand start to yield a likely V15 boulder still called Meadowlark Lemon. Comments Robinson:
I considered it one of the best lines I have ever climbed on in the entire world. The boulder is super physical, yet really technical. The crux revolves around some really crazy heel hooks on the left arete.
The ascent was captured on film for Chuck Fryberger’s upcoming movie, The Network.
