Weekend Whipper: Franco Cookson’s Ground Fall While Soloing “Academia” (E10 7a / 5.13+ X)
Soloing this route is the only option---there's no gear! Amazingly, Cookson walked away no worse for the wear, and got right back up and sent the damn thing.
We’re glad this one has a good ending. For the full story on Cookson’s second ascent of Academia (E10 7a / 5.13+ X), read our report here!
Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
