Moss Rock

Jimmy, Kasia, Jo Beth I drove to Birmingham, AL yesterday to compete in the annual Moss Rock competition. Really we were just looking for a good time and some new boulders. We found both.

After a warm up on some really cool easy highballs, I hopped right on the hardest boulder in the field - Reignition sit (v10). The line follows a series of cool slopers and edges out a steep roof to a fun topout (4 stars). It went pretty quick and Jimmy and I moved on to flash roof's other line, the Godfather (v10). Then we got psyched on a project starting on Reignition and climbing through a huge move and a couple toe hooks. Jimmy sent for the first and I followed up quickly. The name: Out of Touch (v10). Other highlights included the classic highball Serenity Now (v7) and the powerful Beef It direct (v9).

It was really a fun time - met some new people, climbed some new boulders, and made a little money. Thanks to the locals for beta and for making this comp a great time. Also, thanks to Adam Henry for organizing the whole thing!
