So after 2 weeks of no real climbing due to a split tip I finally managed to get back on some projects at Echo Valley one of them being In Search Of A New Sound – 8a which is a really hard crimper prow problem. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to send it but I did manage to send an awesome little 7a called Test Tube which had been in the back of my mind since I first tried it 2 or so years ago.

Because of the rising summer temps I wasn’t able to climb for too long but there was the high line crew rigging a line up there which was rad to watch and photograph.
Some stills from the day.
