Lucifer (5.14c) For Dylan Barks

In an impressive display, Dylan Barks repeated Mike Doyle’s Lucifer (5.14c) at Purgatory in the Red River Gorge today. Barks looked strong and in control throughout his send burn, and not even a wasp sting on the finger at the 2nd to last bolt could keep him from clipping the chains.

Barks, who finished 2nd at last weekend’s SCS Nationals, had previously climbed another 5.14c at the Red when he did Southern Smoke last year.

    Pretty sure if I got stung by a wasp on lead I would cry.
