"Tuesday, March 30, after 2 years of trying the sit start to Rastaman Vibration, I was able to make the FA of this boulder problem. I named it Lucid Dreaming and with slight hesitation, gave it the grade V16 because it was significantly more difficult mentally and physically than anything I have ever done in my climbing career thus far.
Lucid Dreaming! Paul Robinson makes FA of V16 start for Rastaman Vibration!
The original stand start takes away one of the crux moves, which is grabbing and sticking the nearly non-existent pinch for a few seconds before dynoing for a small crimp. This problem has really marked a turning point in my climbing career. I see a lot more potential in my climbing and hope to be able to establish harder and harder climbs as the years go on."
