We Have Contact!!!

Well another rad weekend out on real rock......
The weather has just been amazing lately and with good conditions brings the sweet sweet taste of sendage!!

I first tried Contact last Summer and had a really hard time sticking the crux..

It seems that allot of the climbs I'm coming across in Sydney these days just have one move, either you can pull it or ya can't.... it's as simple as that :/

This was one of those types of climbs and I just didn't have the power yet to hold that sloopy undercling pinch, with the summer humidity as well it felt impossible :/

So 6 months later some mates from St Peters are syked to go down and give Savage V8, the crag classic a good burn.
I figure this is a good opportunity to bench mark my training over the last 6 months and see where I stand.

Pulling the crux of Contact V12, on link for the first time....
Linking the final hard moves...

Check out some of these's rad pics of Cory and Malaya working the Crux of Savage!!!
Cory got really close to the send, falling of the final tricky moves up the crimpy face, not bad for the first day on...
