Mega Man Second Ascent

So a few days ago we traveled out to alabama so Brion could try and complete the 2nd ascent of my problem Mega Man, V11. Which he did, in just a few tries. Also before that he managed a very casual flash of Hustle and Flow, V10! Very sick!
Earlier that day I was able to make the First Ascent of a very powerful stand start arete I called Chain Slang, V10. Brad and I had tried the arete a couple days prior and was basically getting shutdown. Coming back the weather was a bit nicer/drier, and I was able to hook it up in just a couple of goes! For a one move power bloc, i'd say this one isn't half bad!

Here's a video Nate Draughn threw together of our day there!

Nice work.

the new problem looks sick! nice work.

on another note, just wanted to let you know Josh Reyes is walking through the boulders with the land owner on Friday the 5th to discuss the purchase of the boulders. Just pass the word along to anyone who climbs there to not head out there that Friday. cheers

Dave,
Mega Man is located at a nonsecure area.. so i can't disclose the location. But hopefully in the future, if things go well, it will be open to all!!
Sorry!
