Jade Finished

Today we went back out the RMNP so I could give another round of attempts on Jade. The weather was basically awful, i still had two small split tips.. and a send seemed far from possible.... On my first attempt though i surprised myself by sticking the crux move and falling on the standstart due to frozen fingers. After this i sat around for 10 minutes trying to cool my fingers off, and keep my index from bleeding.. Eventually i decided to give it one more effort.. I pulled on feeling worse than ever... stuck the crux move... and somehow made my way to the top of the wall!! So syked!I I definately feel as if this is the hardest boulder i've ever climbed.. and i agree with Carlo's downgrade to v14. Either way, this problem is brilliant, and im really glad it is here for me to climb on..

I threw together a clip of the send.. its nothing spectacular, and there is one small editing flaw....but whatever!

haha, thanks! Regarding the "magical hat" ... the send footage looks terrible for the topout and i wanted to get another angle to show the size of the boulder.... and i forgot my hat fell off.. :)
