New 5.14 By Sonnie Trotter

Always nice to see Sonnie Trotter in the news:

Sonnie Trotter has just completed his summer project,Castles in the Sky, on Castle Mountain in the Canadian Rockies. The bolted route, rated 5.14a, rises five pitches up a prow on a lower buttress of the mountain. While the route features moderate pitches of rock near the bottom, a dramatic overhanging arête guards access to the route’s final and easier pitches.

The key to success??  WWTCD of course:

When things got tough, however, he would ask himself “what would Tommy Caldwell do?”

    When I was training for the six minutes I tried to “train”, when it hurt, I used to repeat, “be like Paxti”. It helped, but I learned that training for climbing sucks ass

    Feel free to delete the second post. Was just trying to get the photo embed to work. What tags do you use?

      WordPress automatically converts straight instagram links to the image, but that is only for posts
