Nina Williams sends “Dream Line” Speed of Life
Nina Williams sends Speed of Life V10 at Farley Ledge in Western Massachusetts.
Nina Williams wrote on her Facebook: “Speed of Life. A dream beginning 2009 and realized yesterday. I was initially drawn to its aesthetic line, intimidating size, and crimpy style.
“I stuck with it because SOL is truly a New England ‘king line’ and represented everything I loved about my home area. I became emotionally attached and single-mindedly threw myself at it a year before I moved, and the years afterwards.”
Speed of Life is the classic V10 testpiece Farley Ledge. It requires traversing a rail to big moves on decent crimps and then hard moves with dangerous landing.
