Halfway through Chris’ edit of his send of Dave Hume Problem (V10) at the Lily Boulders in Tennessee, he gives us a glimpse into the back-breaking work he put into the tiered roofs on this beast. The description on the problem’s Mountain Project page reads, “The movement on this problem is flawless.”

The crux comes toward the top, making spotters invaluable, as Chris demonstrates. Nonetheless, he gets up, brushes himself, and eventually takes it to the top. His caption beneath the video captures his sense of satisfaction and relief in putting this boulder problem to rest: “Finally.”

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
