Cian's Echo V11 - Second Ascent

In August 2018 I wrote "when G-Money mixes "hard start" "small crimps" and "V8" together, I'm expecting fingertip amputating seriousness.

Fingertip amputating seriousness is not a metaphor. Zig's crimp lines at V8 are savage, but at V11 it becomes pure sadism. Cian's Echo V11 is named for the screams that would echo through the valley while Zig was working this project in 2001. This line is aesthetic as it is painful. In Zig's own words "6 moves on brutal fingertip crimps." Brutal indeed. Major props for putting up this incredible line!

I included a little edit at the end of this video, and I think you can appreciate a slightly wet sounding pop as my fingertip exploded. I gave up some dignity on the icy topout - I just wanted the pain to be over.
