“I let my ego take over and decided to warm up on a 5.13a called Super Phrique,” Daigre tells Rock and Ice. “I didn’t climb well right off the ground, forgot some beta, and tensed up hard towards the top of the three-bolt route.

“As I was reaching for the rope to clip the anchors the flash pump caught up with me and I realized I couldn’t hold on to the decent finish crimps anymore. I tried to top out instead but couldn’t summon the strength for the final pull.

“In disbelief I peeled off from above the chains and the next thing I knew I’m standing on the crash pad I had thankfully placed below the start. Thanks to a perfect catch from my attentive belayer Jori, I walked away unscathed.”

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
