Tall Tee Complete

It's so nice when amazing things happen unexpectedly ....

Tall Tee was a super difficult project that took me around 8 days of effort last year just to do the crux move ! We went out this morning with hopes of catching the good temps (which we did).. I gave the problem 2 very close efforts from the bottom, and on my third attempt i cruised to the top. After this one shutting me down for so long, and the "move" feeling so damn near impossible .. it is absolutely incredible to have climbed it today without too much effort. It's crazy when your project goes from impossible, to seemingly effortless... I hope this provides anywhere near as much inspiration to others, as it did for me. Good luck to everyone on your projects ! ... It's gonna be a good season .

Nice Put-down Jimmy. Can we at least get pictures? Or maybe a video thrown together after the fact? I want to see this sickness.

Oh, and the Anon comment is just stupid......

quick question, is tall tee tee the big refrigerator prow on the same boulder as tennessee thong? if so, sweet tits man, where'd you find holds to use? if not, what is it? congratulations either way though.

Tall Tee starts on Tthong, and climbs straight up to a really small left hand edge. Then throws big to the lip out right and continues straight up
