A group of Canadian climbers were recently in Bishop, where they sent a number of hard boulders. Experienced highball boulderer, Miles Adamson, made the first ascent of Too Tall to Fall V10.
Also in this short film, produced by Adamson’s Choss Media, is Matt Hendsbee on Judge Not V9, Andrew Funk on Center Direct V10 and Kill on Sight V11 and Alex Fricker on Evilution Direct V11.

Too Tall to Fall – V10!! So excited to share that I have made the first boulder ascent of the Grandma Peabody slab. My line starts on Tiers of Uncertainty, then goes up and left to hit the 5.9 arete lip jugs. VERY proud to contribute a line to Bishop highballing, as the first boulder up a famously blank face. Thanks so much to @daniel_beall for coming out with an army of pads and the vision for the line that drew me to the wall. I hope one day Tiers proper is bouldered, it would be the boldest highball in the world. For now, taking a hard left where the wall gets steep makes this line similar to Too Big to Flail. We have a ton of video from the trip and will edit it once home. Photo by Dave Johnson
