A work in progress - Check Your Head - Sam Hayden

 
A work in progress - Check Your Head - Sam Hayden
 
February 14, 2012 - 
 

Went to P-Way today, 20 degrees, the friction was great, but I figured out later that my fingers had been numbed by the cold and I didn't feel the terrible burning pain in my fingers that I have now.  My dad got me up at 7:00am...-10 at our house!  We headed south hoping the temps would increase and thankfully they did.  I worked a V9 there called Check Your Head and found it was definitely one of the more challenging problems at P-Way, I gave it 36 tries and after an hour and a half of almost getting past the crux I was beat.  I guess that's what you get for being just barely short enough that you can't reach the one hold that is the most important.  Hopefully though I'll get a chance to go back and try it again sometime, definitely a worthwhile problem.  Anybody have any beta on Check your Head for a person under five feet tall?  Truly bouldering is about trying to solve the puzzle so my dad and I put together a video of my attempts.  Next time...

Looking forward to east coast tour in March and Colorado in April!!!
