After the bad weather hit Magic Wood, crushing my hopes of finishing off Practice of the Wild V15 (I’ve never been so close to a boulder, and not been able to finish it!), I was psyched to find a new project close to home.  Cresciano provided the answer: The Dagger V14.

I finished off The Dagger V14 today on my 3rd day of effort.  So f***ing psyched!  Very intense on the core and the toe-hooks.

 

The send was caught on video, but I won’t be releasing it though.  I will hopefully be re-shooting it and it will appear in a new film on Swiss Bouldering that is due out next year.  Check out this little sneak preview:

The beta that I developed was quite odd.  Most people either climb  it backwards or forwards (straight on).  I opted for a more sideways method.  This resulted in quite a few back flops and some blood to go with it:

The send go felt very, very solid, and I’m extremely psyched to try the sit, Story Of Two Worlds.  I still have more than a month left, and this boulder is only five minutes from my apartment, so it makes sense to go for it.  I messed around and did some of the moves already.  There is so much to do in Switzerland!  I’m overwhelmed!  Stay tuned…
