New FA - Ambition V10

Brisk spring temperatures today saw another beautiful new line added to the Halifax hard. Smith and Quinn worked the beautiful face project at the Robotic Wall in the LOC. Tall, slightly overhanging with good holds and high body tension moves reminiscent of "Double Crossed" V9 at Heffalump. Stellar! Located just 5 minutes from Corn and Bung!

Both climbers were super close on the project taking turns for the send attempt. Smith snagged the first ascent and named the line "Ambition" with a suggested grade of V10. After two consecutive days of working the line, Quinn nearly walked away, but dug deep and pulled off the second ascent half packed to leave. 2013 is shaping up to be a stellar year for projects!
