Damn, that was a weekend to remember. First time in the boulder fields, and managed to flash a couple classics like Driven Stand (V9 and my hardest flash?!) and Empire Strikes Back (V8). Went on to tick Apocrita (V9), Serenity Amidst Chaos (V9), The Guardian (V8), and so many other amazing boulders!! . 📸: Jay showing the crew how it's done on Baby Cthulhu, arguably one of the coolest boulders in the fields, if not anywhere. . So grateful to everyone who's put time into this area and made this event happen, and as well to everyone who came out and threw down this weekend. This community is amazing 🔝💯🙏🏻 . @flashedclimbing @hiveclimbing @hivenorthshore @evolvcanada @evolvusa #climbingrevolution #sorryforthespray 😬
