This saturday & sunday Kasia, Rami and myself took a trip down to the Lilly Boulders to climb on the classics, and help shoot some photos for the up and coming guidebook by Kelly Brown. 1st day we climbed on classics, and tried a few harder boulders. I was able to climb an old project of mine Recluse v11, and got super close to climbing the 2nd ascent of James Litz' Tilted World v13 before I ripped a flapper and had to call it quits. On our 2nd day we hiked to a newer boulder field to try a really cool roof Bosley put up called Shattered Mines V10, and search for new problems. Due to the lack of time we didn't get to search around as much as i would've liked, but on the upside I did manage a flash of Shattered Mines. After this we took the hike back to the cars and went over to Lilly Boulders. We warmed up a bit more and Rami climbed the classic Mojo v9, and we hiked back down to Tilted World. I felt super tired, the flapper felt like utter shit, and a send in my mind was very unlikely. With no expectations set in, i decided to try hard and see what happens. If anything we would still have some nice shots courtesy of Mark Large. Then surprisingly on my 4th attempt from the ground i found myself at the finish! I was very psyched to climb this one, and I have to say it's one of the best of the grade, and definitely the best in the Obed.
Here's a vid I threw together, and a couple shots from Mark Large.
