Team Flashed Vs. Show of Hands

Here is a short clip of myself and fellow Flashed athlete Dave Heerema prevailing over gale force winds and sending the Moe's Valley classic Show of Hands V11. Make sure to watch the entire video for little technical difficulty blooper at the end.

Later that day I was also fortunate enough to flash Dead Rabbit V10, a very fun sustained crimp line on Joe's Valley type rock.

These two sends along with a few other quality moderates, made for one of my best climbing days to date. Plus having Dave there to push me and vice versa made the day trip even more memorable.

Ironically, the beginning of the day tested my patience to its absolute limit. Sunscreen exploded all over my bag and soaked through a pair of my shoes leaving the laces and parts of the rubber greasy to the touch. Rain threatened, fell and dried up all in an hour. The wind knocked over the camera and emptied the chalk bag. The list goes on, but somehow we were all able to rally and steer the session back from the brink.
