Decided to go out to Primo Wall a couple weeks back (Jan 21st) with some mates from the gym (DBC): Allen Cheney, David Mullins and Mark Rohr. First climb on my list to send was "Shine 14a" which I had tried a few times before in colder weather but just kept freezing off right after the crux, darn it haha. The weather was very nice that day and go figure I forgot the beta. After, I figured out the moves again, I sent next go. Since I had finished up my project, I decided to give it a go at the 13's.

 

The first climb was Public Solitude (13b). A very interesting climb, easy slab climbing into a tricky flat wall, sloper pinch, section with smear feet that then leads into some crimpy moves to quite a cool dihedral move to anchors.

After that, went right over to the Nomad Cave and made quick work of Express Yourself (13c). I Ended up getting it 2nd go as I chuffed on a two finger precision move right at the start. Anyways, highly recommend this climb, it did not feel that hard but maybe just suited my style,  I don't know. 
 
Last on the list was River Run (13b), 5.9 climbing, that then leads into a short powerful v9 with some big moves.

Oh yes, I also climbed Crying Flyboys (13a),  a Mazy Mai style climb for those that are familier with that classic Red River Gorge climb.

Here are some pics of me on Crying Flyboys (13a)  Shot by David Mullins
