Reflecting On The Wheel

Interesting piece on Vertical Life about The Wheel Of Life, one of the most repeated hard boulder problems in the world:

It wasn’t that long ago – sometime after Fred Nicole’s ascent of the final link in the cave puzzle, Sleepy Hollow, in 2000 – that I can remember walking from the bottom of the cave to the top, feeling many of those well-fondled, chalked-up holds that miraculously link together and speculating about the eventual ascent of the entire line. At the time I thought it would take a generation or two. How wrong I was.
