New V14 by Chris Webb Parsons

So I headed up to Sydney for the weekend... bumbled on a few problems at The Balkans on saturday but everything was a bit wet so options were limited... wasn't too bad though, had some fun :-)

Then Sunday Chris, Teegan, Helen, Stacey and myself headed to Sissy only to find it covered on water... so on to Crubly we went... only to find it in pretty good conditions, much to my suprise!

We all played around on a v5 at the right hand end...Helen Day & Teegan Webb Parsons managed to make it look easy, leaving me slapping the final jug on each attempt... snatching defeat from the jaws of victory haha.

Then Chris had a go at his new project at the left hand end of Crumbly, which links the start of Mushi Brain into Genesis (a 4 move v13)... he thought he would just have a go at Genesis to see how it felt, and he walked up it while still basically 'stone cold austin' as he put it... impressive to say the least.

A short rest and next shot from the start of the project he fell at the crux move... on more short rest and it was in the bag... there was a fight for the last few holds but it was well and truly in the bag.

The result?

'Catalyst' - v14 :: Sydneys hardest boulder problem? Go try it and see for yourself ;-)

Well done Chris... friggin top work!

Heres a pic of Chris on the start moves

Enjoy! :-)
