This one comes from Chris Loh, during a burn on a 5.13a called Pride, at Echo Cliffs, in Los Angeles Basin.

“This was my 3rd attempt,” Loh told Rock and Ice. “The 9th bolt was difficult for me to clip and since the fall was safe I chose to skip it. This was the first (and only) time I took that fall. It felt really slippery that day and my feet were constantly coming off. The rope got behind my leg when my foot cut on the easy section up top which twisted me sideways as I let go of the right hand side pull. It was a heart break since there were only 3 more moves to the top. I sent the next day on my 6th attempt.”

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
