Ever since I saw the vid of @dawoods89 FAing this line I’ve wanted to do it. Something about hiking 13 miles every day to try this boulder made the experience that much more special. So much thanks to @agrphoto @quanstrom_physics @torrey.lind @cameron_horst11 @lukels12 for hiking back here with me, couldn’t have done it without y’all.
