Flight of the Day #1957

This is perhaps the first time Pearce has climbed a rope with only his hands. To onlookers it looks a bit like a spiraling flight; to the climber it feels like channeling the strength of some great beast – Donkey Kong, perhaps.

We’ve both gained this strength from climbing the plastic cliffs; before Bridges, I wasn’t able to climb a rope at all.

I finished a route today that I’ve been trying to top for a month. Little accomplishments are so much better when you’ve been working at them for a long time.
