You Would If You Really Loved Me

What do you do when it's your good friend's last day in Halifax and mother nature takes a big white shit on your climbing plans? What if this friend is Nova Scotia's best outdoor rock climber?

Grab a headlamp, broom, rope and head out into the storm and scrub that big slippery bitch!
 

The hard work payed off with back-to-back sends of Ghislain's unrepeated Transitions V10. The portal is open as Abel would say. 

Two completely different betas on this tricky climb. I opted for the direct approach: a hard dynamic move off an impossibly high foot to an impossibly subtle sloper. Ben used a slick knee bar to crack the opening sequence with a fully static reach!

Ben didn't stop there, and very nearly took down the sit start project in a single session! Multiple heart breaking send goes linking past the crux - as close as you could possibly get without sending. 2020 is off to a good start!
