Over the Easter holiday last year, Eline Næsheim went climbing with friends in Bohuslän, Sweden. One of her friends was projecting Skräckpropaganda, an 8a (5.13b) in the Galgeberget sector.

After sussing it out on toprope, Eline’s friend decided one crisp morning, just as the sun was hitting the climb, that it was time to take the sharp end.

Belayed by another friend named Joakim, the climber looks good all the way up, just until the last piece of protection. Eline told Rock and Ice, “In the video she places the last protection, I don’t remember which one, but it was a small piece. And from there you just have to go! It looks like she didn’t reach the sloper on the slab properly.”

Great job belaying Joakim—could have been a lot worse.

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
