Weekend Whipper: Face-First Plunge on Rock Wars (5.10a)
Who doesn't like taking in a view of the ground as they whip towards it?
In this whipper, Nathan takes his first plunge on gear on Rock Wars (5.10a) at the Long Wall in the Red River Gorge. We see the “ankle-catch, upside-down flip” pretty often, but the downwards running man is an elusive beast.
As much as we all like to turn and take in the sights once in a while, we here at R&I personally try to avoid doing our ground-scanning while falling. Glad you didn’t deck on this one, Nathan.
Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
