remember Alex Honnold’s ascent of “Too Big To Flail” (V10, Buttermilks, Bishop, CA) in Reel Rock 7: Honnold 3.0?
well my friends Steven Roth and Ethan Pringle just got the 3rd and 4th ascents of it today! SO proud of both of them. they inspire me to work harder and be a better climber every day. I’m lucky to have such strong people in my life.
Steven’s had an incredible season in Bishop, repeating “Too Big To Flail” (V10), Ambrosia (V11), and the FA of a new highball in the Pollen Grains (V9ish?). you’ll be hearing a lot about him in the near future!
