Gardener, rock climber, lumberjack.
How do you stay strong living in Florida?
Many of my strong climbing partners do ring workouts, campus boards, system tiles, logbooks, special diets, etc… But me, I’m a bit of a freak of nature. I can on occasion be spotted at my home gym Vertical Ventures as I try to not only reach, but maintain a high level of fitness. After over a decade of climbing I have learned what works for me and what doesn’t.
You’ve traveled to many exotic locales, how does the bouldering in Australia compare with other places you’ve been?
Currently, the developed boudering in Australia’s Grampians is not the most extensive, especially when compared to places like Rocklands, Font, Hueco, Swizzy and New Zealand. However, with recent new route development and the potential for significantly more, this spot will soon be a world class destination.
Were you down there with a posse?
Other than heaps of kangaroos, and my coach and sensei, “B”, I was not. Pushing my limits would not have been possible without these pouched friends.
How long did you work on Cherry Picking?
I can’t remember if it was 6 or 7 days. On the first day I was able to climb up to the “cherry picking” move, but it took another 5 days to finally realize the send.
Describe to us the day of the Send.
Heading south to Baundik sector, a 35 minute drive from our home, it appeared to be a perfect day, but as we neared the craggy Victoria range it looked like our day might be rained out. Since it was our last day to climb we decided to make the 40 minute uphill both ways hike through the gusty rain storms. Miraculously, the howling wind had worked in our favor and the rock was as dry and sticky as we had yet experienced.
Time was of the essence, so after a brief warm up I pulled on and quickly fell off at the crux. Again. On my second go, while bumping with my left hand to hit the crucial dimpled seam on the sloper, I completely missed the sweet spot. I threw for the Cherry Picking slot and this time, something was different. This time, I stayed on. Carefully and methodically I climbed the remaining 15 ft of chikenheads and friable edges to victory.
How would you rank Cherry Picking in terms of quality?
For sure 4 star and as close a contender for the theoretical 5th star as anything. (so its an amazing boulder problem)
Was your beard a crucial part of the equation on Send Day?
Unlike the chaotic nature of my beard, my mind was calm. My beard has no comment.
Introduce this video for us
This is video shot over the course of all the days working Cherry Picking. In one of the segments you’ll see me repeatedly trying to readjust on the heinous sloper searching for what I thought was the “crucial dimpled seam.” It finishes with the uncut send footage. And a few dead foxes.
