I am ecstatic to announce that two days ago, on January 28th, I found myself topping out The Mandala! This magnificent prow has been on my dream list since I first began climbing, and it's such an incredible personal accomplishment. I don't know what else I can say besides "I'm soo psyched!!" I split my index tip on the send and was planning on taking the next day off and resting, but somehow got suckered into climbing (of course) and managed to pump out Beefcake as well. I guess it was an alright rest day. :)
This summer came together much like most of the best things do, completely...
