Watch Miles Adamson Send Ambrosia V10 Highball

Alberta-based climber Miles Adamson recently climbed Ambrosia, a V10 highball in Bishop. Adamson worked on the classic testpiece using a rope, which every other climber who’s sent it has done.

Adamson is one of Canada’s leading highball climbers with sends of a number of tall problems that have big consequences if the climber falls near the top.

Adamson is currently selling an app called The Climbing Coach that has over 100 climbing exercises, which you can buy here.

Sent! Ambrosia went very smoothly after working it on TR. I felt amazing, got it first try of the day. The heel hook beta is a breeze compared to the high left foot method. More people will probably repeat it that way in the future. I really wanted to push myself with the ground up style on a famous route. The move above the hueco was far harder than it looks in videos. That made me wonder if higher moves were harder than I thought too. They actually were too, I thought the top holds were edges with some bite but they were mostly slopey features. The decision to bail on that was hard because it was basically all I trained for. But I couldn't have realistically tried it more without getting hurt. I took around 10 falls total (across both trips) from above the hueco. It fuckin hurts the knees even with 4 layers of pads. Hopefully this new heel hook beta will help @rockninja_8a do the first(?) ground up ascent. Do not underestimate the top sequence. Best of luck man thanks for the psyche and pads!! . This is a screenshot from the video @k_i_l_l_a_b_e_e took. I'll edit it all together when I get home, we leave tomorrow morning.
