Yesterday, Sonnie Trotter made a rare (5th) ascent of Ambrosia V12?  Being the second climber to do it since a major foothold broke,  the first being Enzo Oddo, who claimed the 4th ascent at the tender age of 15 just last year.  The 40 foot super highball was first established by Five Ten athlete Kevin Jorgeson and climbs directly up the south face of the Grandpa peabody boulder.  Here's what Sonnie said in an email today....

 

Sent Ambrosia yesterday!   So stoked.  It's been a bit of a dream climb for a few years now.   I think it's a bit harder than it was for sure, probably V12 now that the big foothold is gone.  Much harder than all the other V11's I've done here, but I'm a horrible boulderer so who knows?   What a line, high, scary, quite hard, and absolutely STUNNING.  It's the type of climb you just have to step up for,  I'm glad I did it.  I wore the Blanco's for precision edging, and they (as they always do), delivered again.  Trying Luminance today.  Best Wishes.
Sonnie.
