New 8a in Dayton

Location: Dayton Pocket

Crew: Hugh Huffaker, Rami Annab, Aj Hanson, Andrew Kornylak, Brion Voges

Goal: Roof project on the river, just past western gold.

Today was a sick day, as we got to climb on a very cool roof project at Dayton. At first glance this problem looked reeeally hard. The crux moves revolved around awkward movements on slopey crimps, hanging off a good heel like it's your job, deadpointing to a small 3 finger pocket, and making a large toss to a 2 pad jug. Once crucial beta was refined and the subtleties were figured out, I was able to climb the boulder for its First Ascent. For those of you looking for a new hard boulder to get the psyche up, this one should be close to the top of your list!

Problem completed: Foundation, v11
