School's Out!....almost

With the school year coming to a close things are getting pretty crazy with last minute tests, exams, and so many friends graduating it's hard to stay sane. But not to worry children, in this hectic time I ventured down to Rocktown with my brother, Zach Adkins, and did some rock scaling/filming to blow off some steam. It wasn't too hot but warm enough to make the slopers feel awful. Anyways, we warmed up on The Island of Beautiful Women V4 and then I worked on Speculum V10 and fell on the last hard move about 6 or 7 times only about an inch from the next hold so hopefully it will go down next time... after that we headed over to the Sherman Roof and Zach sent Nose Candy V6 and I did Sherman Photo Roof V7. Maybe it's because of the heat but the second hold felt really awful, it's a very small sloping crimp and really the only grip on it is the lip of the hold even though it appears to be a full pad in the video. After that Zach worked on Mr. Stiffy V5 which is a really fun, super classic problem that involves a looong lock off from a crimp to a...crimp...yeaa... but no send unfortunately. He did make a lot of progress on that as well as Pythagorean Theorem V5. As for the rest of my day I took it easy with P.T. & a crazy problem called Pulling Tubes V6. Basically it's no feet and sloping crimps of the decent to poopy categories. I made a video of a few of those problems so if you need a break from studying then check it out>>>
