Experiencing A Significant Gravitas Shortfall

It's that time of the year again: Tsunami Area is the most popular topo on Mobeta as climbers flock to the ocean to escape the heat. Now that Ziggy Stardust V7 has been destroyed by the ocean, there is quite a large difficulty gap between Tall Guy V4 and Tsunami V8/9. 

Ben Smith and David Quinn were playing around and came up with a solution to this problem: tandem climbing! Team up with a partner and do the traverse relay style. Tag your partner in at the rest. Do each section, forwards, backwards or both!

Later in the session, Quinn went on to snag the second ascent of Ben Smith's Imanust V9. Ben sent Imanust in 2006 which turns out to be another fantastic overlooked gem, reminding us to have fun and not take climbing too seriously. Very little gravitas indeed.
