The Precise Nature Of The Catastrophe

Hurricane Juan slammed into Halifax September 2003 and left a wake of destruction. While everyone cried over losing a few shitty trees in Point Pleasant Park - the real tragedy was a much lesser tropical storm 7 years later. 

In 2010, Duck Head was devastated as a million pounds of granite was washed into the ocean. Those weeds in point pleasant will be back in a hundred years or so. The age of granite is measured on cosmic timescales. Nick Sagar's beautiful The Grind V12 is gone forever. Unrepeated. For eternity.

A year later, Ben Blakney finished grieving and ventured out to see what could be salvaged from the disaster. The result is a stunning FA in its own right - Hydropower V10. 

Fortunately, this beauty won't suffer the same fate as The Grind. Taking advantage of crispy fall weather, Paul Denzler snagged the second ascent of Hydropower

At least 2 people have been able to share in this echo of Duck Head's former glory. Hopefully, there will be others.
